“Basel” is a public project for Basel’s Messeplatz, presented by Creative Time and commissioned by Art Basel. Conceived by artists Lara Almarcegui, Isabel Lewis and Santiago Cirugeda led architecture studio Recetas Urbanas, “Basilea” marks Creative Time’s first international public commission and the first collaboration between the artists. The project aims to create awareness of the capacity we, as citizens, have to alter and reappropriate an urban environment, at both individual and collective levels. It will encourage discussions about the self-governance and the use and ownership of public space. “Basilea” includes a collectively built structure, a large-scale installation, a series of workshops, events and hosted occasions.
