An engagement with contemporary art can be beneficial for anyone, whether they have experience of art or not. Art can stir our creativity if it confronts us with unexpected situations or does not fit the pattern of how we usually see. Our imagination can be stimulated at the very point of a break in the familiar. The Kunsthaus Baselland offers a multifaceted programme of tours, workshops and discussions with figures from art and culture but equally business, science and politics, and invites anyone to have new experiences through art.


If you are interested in what we have to offer please phone (+41) 61 563 15 10 or email us. We will be delighted to take your booking and are of course available to answer your questions.

We invite you to walk with us through the current temporary exhibitions. Thanks to a physical experience of the work we begin to understand the exhibition’s content and can make links to current concerns beyond art. With background information about the topics and strategies of the invited artists as well as through the shared discussion we gain a comprehensive viewpoint of the work within the exhibition.
