The Kunsthaus Baselland is among the leading exhibition venues for regional, national and international contemporary art in the Basel region. Since 1998 the institution has offered artists a significant platform for their presentation in the framework of solo, group or thematic exhibitions. Numerous artists have had their first institutional showing in Switzerland or in Europe here.

The curatorial programme is focussed on contemporary art in the Basel region which is positioned within an international discourse through accompanying international and national exhibitions.

The Kunsthaus Baselland supports and promotes the creation of new works that enter into dialogue with the Kunsthaus architecture and/or that of the Basel region. Under the current director many of the invited local, national and international artists have been encouraged to develop new, sometimes large-scale works and work series specifically for this site.

As a public institution there is awareness of the Kunsthaus Baselland’s educational remit. An established educational programme is offered for children, young people and adults that is consistently developed and extended.

The exhibition programme is, despite limited means, augmented by publications, talks and conversations with artists, creators and figures from business, politics and education. The Kunsthaus opens its doors for the study of artists and their works of art through collaboration with neighbouring, internationally active further education institutions.

With the relocation to a new building in April 2024 the institution takes a significant step into the future. Designed by Buchner Bründler Architekten, the former champagne warehouse has been transformed into a venue for contemporary art and is located at Dreispitz—a vibrant surrounding close to the city of Basel with an exciting community. Together with the neighborhood, including Schaulager, Basel Academy of Art and Design FHNW, HEK, Atelier Mondial, Radio X, numerous residents, and notable architectural firms like Herzog & de Meuron, Kunsthaus Baselland envisions the future as a lively place of exchange and informed encounter with contemporary art as part of an up-and-coming area.
