On Saturday, June 16, Parcours Night once again will present a specially curated program of live performances with extended opening hours of Parcours and of some of Basel’s leading museums. Art Basel, whose Lead Partner is UBS, takes place at Messe Basel from June 14 to June 17, 2018.

Opening Monday afternoon, June 11, Parcours this year will reflect on the politicalpotentials of storytelling, seeking to investigate what stories can tell us about our lives. Titled ‘Telling Stories for the Future’, the exhibition will encompass presentations in civic and private locations that will open exclusively for Parcours as well as collaborations with Basel’s museums, encouraging alternative social and geographical encounters with the city. Through a focus on storytelling, Samuel Leuenberger, Director and Curator of SALTS in Birsfelden, Switzerland, aims to cultivate commonalities and allied thinking across social, geographic, ethnic, economic and ecological boundaries.

Highlights include Thomas Struth’s ‘Animals’ (2018), a series of 10 photographs that sensitively capture animals following their moment of surrender. Installed in the Erste Kirche Christi, the work will be drawn from his recent images of scientific and surgical environments, as well as the history of memento mori in art. A program of live music, chosen by Struth in collaboration with guitarist Frank Bungarten, will be presented at selected times throughout the week. By installing 10 sound systems throughout Basel’s sewers, Hannah Weinberger will create a mysterious soundscape scattered across the city that invites the public to tune into a new experience of the city. Each of the 10 sewers will be activated with site-specific compositions created by Weinberger that play against the daily sounds of the sewers and the city.

Suspended in mid-air inside the Antikenmuseum Basel und Sammlung Ludwig, Elmgreen & Dragset’s large-scale sculpture ‘Hanging Rock’ (2017) will act as a blockade, concealing certain elements of the architectural structure that surrounds it. Playing on the ideas of nature, gravity and natural phenomena, the piece explores preconceived views of natural beauty and the overcoming of obstacles. Pierre Huyghe’s ‘Exomind (Deep Water)’ (2017) features a crouching female figure with a beehive growing from her head. The colony of bees living inside the hive will pollinate the surrounding flora in the garden of the Allgemeine Lesegesellschaft Basel.
