After the successful start of the fair in 2018, paper positions will now take place in Basel again in 2019.
From 11 – 16 June 2019, during Basel Art Week, 35 international galleries will present outstanding artistic positions on drawing and the medium of paper. In the centrally located Ackermannshof the fair will occupy three rooms on two floors: the printing hall, the ballroom and the former studio of Dieter Roth. Applications are open as of mid-December 2018.
paper positions basel wants this special genre to be focused on in this important week. The galleries and their artists are given a presentation opportunity, which is dedicated to the medium of paper with all its specific features, its fragility and its enormous versatility.
In the spirit of its fair concept, which refrains from classic booths and is completely tailor-made for the most sensitive exhibits, paper positions basel deliberately focuses on a salon-like situation with continuous exhibition walls. The limited number of exhibitors also underlines the character of a large theme-based exhibition. The spatial design offers an open overview as well as the possibility to directly approach individual artistic works and to perceive them in a mutual dialogue.
