switzerland´s first international art fair
dedicated to photography based art
photo basel’s broad aspiration is to be an international art fair dedicated to photography based art from classic to contemporary that is fostering the dialogue and exchange between all photography aficionados. In order to gain maximum momentum, photo basel takes place in Basel during Art Basel week.
To reach excellence, photo basel will go a new way in combining synergies from galleries, museum experts, collectors and curators, all working seamlessly hand in hand for the common shared vision which is to further establish photo basel’s status as premier boutique art fair.
For the 2017 photo basel art fair, photo basel launches it’s circles of experts:
The advisory circle will consist mostly of galleries and is not to be mistaken as "Selection Committee" - thus mainly because we strongly believe that no gallery should "judge" another gallery. Since galleries are the centrepiece of our art fair, their inputs, suggestions and feedback are necessary to constantly improve our services to them and their clients.
We are welcoming the following galleries and publishers onto our advisory circle:
F&C Walter, Switzerland
Galerie Baudoin Lebon, Paris
Grundemark Nilsson, Berlin and Stockholm
Kahmann Gallery, Amsterdam
Podbielski Contemporary, Berlin
Éditions Xavier Barral, Paris
The curatorial circle will be in charge of reviewing and selecting the content of photo basel (including a selection of participating galleries and exhibitors), special projects and special exhibitions:
Dr. Felix Ackermann, Collector, Basel
Ben Füglister, Artistic Director, Cap Prize and Images Afrique Initiator & Assistant Editor at European Photography, Berlin
Sueraya Shaheen, Publisher "Tribe magazine", Dubai
Anastasia Lepikhova, Independent Curator, Moscow, former Curator at Lumière Brothers Centre for Photography, Moscow
Dr. Heinz Stahlhut, Sammlungskonservator Kunstmuseum Luzern, Lucerne
