Art 43 Basel 2012: Art Parcours Night

Art Parcours is a project of Art Basel that invites Art Basel’s visitors to discover the city via Art. This year Art Parcours explores the area around St. Johann. That’s very practical for us, as VernissageTV has its offices in this area of the city. Art Parcours St. Johann is curated by Jens Hoffmann, Director of the CCA Wattis Institute in San Francisco. It’s the third issue of Art Parcours and features site-specific works and performances, which deal with the history of Basel and the Basel of today. The artistic interventions were proposed by the Art Basel galleries and curated by Jens Hoffmann.
