Opening to the public over 350 years ago, the Kunstmuseum Basel is a living symbol of Baslers’ love of art. Its program unfolds over three striking venues – the Hauptbau, Neubau, and Gegenwart – that are located by the Rhine and operate like ‘three parts of a single organism’s body’, says director Josef Helfenstein. The Kunstmuseum Basel’s collections range from Pre-Renaissance painting to installations by Modern and contemporary artists. Yet far from relying on such riches, the museum constantly strives to offer visitors new perspectives on its holdings.
