Since June 2004, Kunsthalle Basel has appeared in its former grandeur once again: commissioned by Basler Kunstverein, the architects Miller & Maranta modernised the building to make it fit for present-day cultural activities. Although the overall proportions have remained untouched, the former rooms on the lower floor have been integrated to form a larger entity. Additionally, new parquet flooring as well as an enhanced technical infrastructure allow more flexible use of the various showrooms.
More than just an exhibition site for the visual arts, Kunsthalle Basel sees itself as a hub between artists and art agents and as a place that brings together local and international developments. The building complex of Kunsthalle Basel provides a constant and elegant setting in the fast-paced world of frequently changing exhibitions.
