Crisis? What crisis? At the 41st Art Basel, the international art fair for Modern and contemporary works, one gets the impression, that the art market is booming again (evil tongues say that this is also shown by the fact, that many dealers are putting up tasteless works again). The Vernissages of Art Unlimited on Monday and Art 41 Basel on Tuesday saw huge crowds and art dealers with happy faces. This years Art Basel features nearly 300 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa. More than 2,500 artists, ranging from the great masters of Modern art to the latest generation of emerging stars, are represented in the show’s multiple sections.
This video provides you with a walkthrough, showing some artworks (and people) that caught our camera’s eye.
