Underneath the Volkshaus Basel, a compound renovated by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron that contains various cultural highlights such as a bar, restaurant, event spaces, a club, a biergarten and soon also a hotel. Volkshaus Basel is located on Rebgasse 12-14 that is 700 meters away from Art Basel fairground - tape basel is on Schafsgässlein located in the Club No.8 of the Volkshaus.
time based media art is on the verge of becoming acknowledge by international institutions. video art needs a regular platform for it to be exposed, for it's audience to become curious.
we believe that the time is ripe for digital art to be present in our daily lives and enrich our culture.
