SPECIAL PROJECTS 2011

As every year, at VOLTA7 there will be more than commercial galleries on show. Independent artists, local Basel residents, artist projects and collectives are also asked to share the important Basel platform.

The HomeBase Project

 

From Berlin/New York the The HomeBase Project also finds temporary sanctuary at VOLTA7. The HomeBase Project is an International site-specific urban art project that explores the notion of home as a window into questions of identity, and as the foundation of humanity. By pursuing a nomadic model annually in neighborhoods undergoing change and inviting a diverse group of international artists / collaborators, HomeBase seeks to challenge the role of art as a tool for cross-cultural dialogue, social integration, and community cultivation, thus fostering interconnectedness in society through the arts.
