Monica Studer / Christoph van den BergSehnsuchtsorte / Places of Longing
Kunstverein Baselland, Basel/ Muttenz, Switzerland
What could our places of longing be? What identies them and what might endanger them? What accords with our personal image of an extraordinary day, an unusual experience of nature or a paradisiac state, for us or other beings? Can we find this amid the quotidian? In the most varied manner selected video works investigate this question of the societal and individual longing for an ideal place of being oneself. With recent acquisitions for the dotMov.bl collection as well as other contributions from, amongst others, Teresa Hubbard / Alexander Birchler, Max Philipp Schmid, Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger and Monica Studer / Christoph van den Berg.
