Die Sendung

Xtanbul is on air this week with a multigenre program featuring eclectic sets by a rotating cast of international and local musicians. Today, Xtanbul Team prepared a show which is going to keep you up to date about arts & culture events in Basel and Switzerland!   

  • Museum Tinguely has a new exhibition: "Territories of Waste". The group exhibition focuses attention on this contemporary artistic engagement and asks where such discussions are taking place today, as well as taking a new look from this perspective at the art of the second half of the twentieth century. When you visit the exhibition you will see the most critical works of Agnes Denes, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Raul Walch, and Pinar Yoldaş.
  • Even though we are living in very modern society, minorities are still underrepresented in museums. Kunsmuseum Basel is also included in this. Kunstmuseum Basel says the new exhibition "Fun Feminism" was born through conversation between Senam Okudzeto and Claudia Müller. The artists approached Kunstmuseum Basel with the suggestion of looking at the collection through a feminist lens while combatting the stereotype of feminism as humorless with an emphasis on joy, playfulness, and irreverence — which gave rise to the current exhibition. It features outstanding, yet rarely shown works with a feminist subtext in the permanent collection from the late 1960s to the 1990s, and recent works by contemporary artists. The exhibition is going to be seen on the 24th of September. 

  • Vitra Design Museum is going to host (one more time) »Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine«. First presented in 2017, the exhibition travelled the world. More than 200 exhibits from industry and the home, as well as computer games, media installations and examples from film and literature, such as the famous R2-D2 robot from Star Wars. They all illustrate how much our lives are already permeated by robots, even in the most intimate domains. »Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine« is going to open its door -one more time- 24 September 2022.
