«Friday Beyeler» - Uncommon Wisdoms
On the evening of “Uncommon Wisdoms”, we shall explore the valuable wisdoms that are still passed on from generation to generation. Art plays an important role in this context, and shows how traditions and lore can contain much of great worth. Be it the handicrafts of entire cultures, or simply the words of our grandparents and great-grandparents—this “Friday Beyeler” offers a wonderful opportunity to revive wisdoms of all different kinds, and to strike out on new old paths through art.
The “Friday Beyeler” event series takes place on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Fondation Beyeler and welcomes all friends of the arts and inspiring encounters to the museum. From 16 September to 16 December 2022, the exhibitions, the park and the restaurant of the Fondation Beyeler will be open until 10 p.m. every Friday. In addition, under the title “I Hear a New World - 14 Miaows of the Future”, students and artists who teach at the Institute of Art Gender Nature at FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel will transform the museum foyer into a creative platform for contemporary art, featuring live performances, films, talks, music, poetry and dance.
The “Friday Beyeler” events are included in the museum admission. The performances are ongoing and can be joined at any time.
