Xtanbul is on air this week with a multigenre program featuring eclectic sets by a rotating cast of international and local musicians. Today we are reminding our listeners of arts and culture events happening in Basel.
- The Architecture Week started 9th of May and will continue till the 15th. This year’s focus is on the 'Reale Räume' (Real Spaces) of three current development sites: Dreispitz (Münchenstein), Bachgraben (Allschwil) and Klybeck (Basel).
- Basel Dance Festival "Das Tanzfest" started 10th of May. Across Switzerland, 20 dance companies are going to make a Swiss tour - including the winners of the Swiss Awards for the Performing Arts. The events can be seen in public spaces, and on the theater stages. There will be special events for children. In addition, dance films will be shown.
- The annual presentation at the Vitra Schaudepot reveals the collection of the Vitra Design Museum in a fresh light every year. The new focus topic, which will be on display from May 2022 to May 2023, is wholly devoted to colour. Following an invitation from the Vitra Design Museum, Dutch designer Sabine Marcelis has transformed the Schaudepot in one simple, sweeping gesture by sorting its roughly four hundred exhibits by colour.
