23 December 2013
Numerous departments, museums and institutions are gathered under the roof of the University of Basel and cover a wide range of subjects. Further institutions are either associated with the university or stand in close contact with it otherwise. The new events series “Uni-Ein-Blicke” wants to give students and employees further insights into these institutions, in order to better get to know the university, its partners and subjects.
The tours are organized by students, doctoral students and postdocs that are working at the respective facilities. Whenever possible, there will be a German as well as an English tour on offer. The first tour on Friday, 10 January 2014 will be held by scientists from the National Center of Competence in Research Eikones and the Department of Art History who are inviting participants on a tour through the current exhibition on Piet Mondrian, Bernett Newmann and Dan Flavin at the Kunstmuseum Basel. After 45 minutes of guided tour, it will be possible to have a discussion with the doctoral students followed by an aperitif at the museum’s bistro. The event is free of charge; the number of participants is limited.
Mondrian, Newman and Flavin
With Piet Mondrian, Barnett Newman and Dan Flavin the current exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Basel is presenting three important modern artists. All three dedicated themselves to abstract art, but each did so under very different premises. The Kunstmuseum Basel owns central works of all three artists. These works form the exhibition’s backbone and will be complemented with carefully chosen loans from Europe and the US. The exhibition will be on display until 19 January 2014.
Further “Uni-Ein-Blicke” are planned for the spring semester 2014 at the Botanical Garden, the Department of Zoology and at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute.
