Friday Beyeler — I Hear a New World
As part of the celebrations marking its 25th anniversary, the Fondation Beyeler, in collaboration with the Institute Art Gender Nature at FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel, will open its doors for 14 evenings of “Friday Beyeler” under the heading “I Hear a New World—14 Miaows of the Future.” Students and artists who teach at the Institute will turn the museum foyer into a creative platform for contemporary art, featuring live performances, films, talks, as well as music, poetry, and dance.
The program of the Institute Art Gender Nature focuses on the joint love for art and how art can provide individuals and communities with an experience of worlds more open and broader than our own everyday experiences. The aim of the program is to provide us with a sense of life that is lighter allowing us first to dream, then to plan.
During the “Friday Beyeler” evenings, the museum and the park will remain open, allowing visitors to take part in the different events, experience current exhibitions, and generally take their time at the Fondation Beyeler. Also, the “Kaminzimmer” room of the “Beyeler Restaurant im Park” will turn into a cocktail bar. The restaurant will remain open until 22:00, featuring a culinary range from snacks to dinners.
The “Friday Beyeler” events are included in the museum admission price and require no booking. More information about the individual evenings is available on their social media channels and their website.
