The Kulturstiftung Basel H. Geiger I KBH.G was founded in 2019 by artist and philanthropist Sibylle Piermattei Geiger (1930–2020) and her husband Rocco Piermattei Geiger, who named the foundation after her grandfather, Swiss pharmacist and entrepreneur Hermann Geiger (1870–1962). It was established to provide the City of Basel with an innovative and unique platform for art and artists. The Foundation’s aim is to create a place with ample room for creativity and provide a space to present exhibitions, which go beyond the concepts of established institutions.

The intention is to create a cultural programme that appeals to everyone, drawing them into experiencing art in a different way each time they visit. Admission is free for all exhibitions. In addition, the Kulturstiftung Basel H. Geiger I KBH.G will produce an elaborate catalogue for each show, which is free of charge for visitors, hence allowing them to take a piece of each exhibition home with them. The objective of the Kulturstiftung Basel H. Geiger I KBH.G is to be established alongside great museums, exhibition venues and galleries in Basel, complementing and expanding cultural life, without competing with existing institutions. The Foundation is convinced that Basel has an enthusiastic, broad-minded and culturally inclined public, with the ability to appreciate the Foundation’s contribution to an already rich and varied cultural programme.
