With A Wet-Run Renewal, the Art Institute of the FHNW Academy of Art and Design together with Kunsthaus Baselland presents a special selection of films during Kunsttage Basel. The films engage with the topics of Bodies of Water, the 13th Shanghai Biennale, and follow its driving motifs—planetary re-alliance, transspecies collectivity, fluid solidarity and embodied environmentalism. The selection presented in Basel, the sole in Europe, resonates with the Art Institute’s curricula, paying special attention to art’s engagement with nature, ocean, gender and diversity. The program is conceived by Filipa Ramos together with the curatorial team of the Biennale. Ramos is a lecturer at the Art Institute and one of the curators of the Biennale. This event offers an important opportunity to visit a part of the Biennale and its ideas, given current travel restrictions.
