Doris Lasch
Bianca Pedrina

January 20–March 19, 2017

Doris Lasch (b.1972, Germany, lives and works in Basel) investigates forms of image production in her first major solo institutional exhibition. At a time when the photographic image seems ubiquitous and the volume of photographically created, not to mention digitally altered, images grows, Lasch questions the processes of this form of generating images using the methods and functionality of photography.

In her photographic work Bianca Pedrina (b. 1985, Switzerland, lives and works in Vienna) consistently engages with the process of visual perception. She frequently traces back forms and ideas of architecture and its history. The question of the relationship between the viewer and their immediate surroundings is central to her work, as well as photography’s claim to truth in general.

 

Daniel Göttin
March 20–December 31, 2017
Kunsthaus Baselland Annual Exterior Project 2017

Daniel Göttin (b.1959, Switzerland, lives in Basel) will allow a surprising insight into his work with the Kunsthaus Baselland’s annual exterior project, which is known to many only as Concrete or Minimal.


Itziar Okariz
March 31–July 16, 2017
In cooperation with CA2M. Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo, Madrid, and Tabakalera. Centro Internacional de Cultura Contemporánea, San Sebastián

Itziar Okariz (b. 1965, Spain, lives in Bilbao) has long been among the most important international performance artists who engage with themes of gender and language particularly, and who in so doing investigate the meaning of word and text in relation to their own bodies. Her works have achieved broad recognition after live performances at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid, amongst others, as well as in the streets of New York, a metropolis where she spent many years.

 

Markus Amm
Piero Golia

April 28–July 16, 2017       

Markus Amm (b. 1969, Germany, lives in Geneva) became internationally known through participation in major group shows on painting like Variations: Conversations In And Around Abstract Painting at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2014 or Triumph of Painting 4: Germania at the Saatchi Gallery, London in 2008, among others. Key to these major survey shows was the question of what painting can be and do today.

Piero Golia (b. 1974, Italy, lives in Los Angeles) is among the most independent-minded contemporary conceptual artists, continually challenging the systems and conditions of art and the expectations artists are subject to. In 2013 he set up Chalet Hollywood—a form of club including loans and works by befriended artists—to enable an experience of art through conversations, shared meals and exchange, etc., in one place. Golia will realise a new work developed specially for the annex of the Kunsthaus for his first institutional showing in Switzerland.

Marcia Hafif
Maja Rieder

September 15–November 12, 2017

Marcia Hafif (b.1929, USA, living in New York and California) is among the pioneers of the 1970s who fundamentally broadened conceptions of the practice of painting. Since the 1980s, terms like "radical" have been used to describe Hafif’s work with monochrome painting. Works from these series, her most radical perhaps, will be exhibited at the Kunsthaus Baselland: the Black Paintings (1979/80) in which she sought black by layering ultramarine blue and burnt umber. In conjunction with the contemporaneous exhibition at the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, this will be Marcia Hafif’s most extensive presentation in Switzerland to date, a long-awaited exhibition from an exceptional artist. 

Maja Rieder (b.1979, Switzerland, lives in Basel) has consistently engaged with the question of how drawing can create a connection to space since she started making art. Rieder’s drawing is not a countour or a descriptive line, but the creation of concrete formulations, such as geometric basic forms in graphite—mostly in powder form—through overlappings or folds of sheets of paper or long paper rolls. This will be Maja Rieder’s largest exhibition to date.
