Volkshaus Basel, a compound smoothly renovated by acclaimed Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron that contains various cultural highlights such as a bar, restaurant, event spaces, a club, a biergarten and soon also a hotel. Volkshaus Basel is located on Rebgasse 12-14 that is 700 meters away from Art Basel fairground what makes photo basel the closest art fair to Art Basel.
photography has, in more recent years, established itself within our museums and the art market. During Art Basel week, we want to enhance and nourish the creative trade of all the major art players within and around photography.
As a gallerist you not only need to sell art, but you need to use the Art Basel week to form and strengthen your new and existing connections with buyers, collectors, curators and friends.
If you are interested in art, you’ll visit Art Basel, if you’re interested in photography, you will be at photo basel.
Visitors have the possibility at photo basel to concentrate their focus to the leading galleries and get in touch with renowned artists as also with emerging talents and they have the chance to get affordable pieces of art (with a high chance of increasing in value).
