Ungestalt

(Friday) (Sunday)

Ungestalt, a somewhat untranslatable German term,
not exactly formless or amorphous, nevertheless describes something that struggles against delineation, against clearly defined form, indeed against the wholeness suggested by “Gestalt.” Maybe something that both is a form and at the same time undoes that form comes the closest to this term that itself escapes capture. Taken as the starting point for a group show, Ungestalt brings together an ensemble of works from artists of different generations, each of whom has responded to their moment with works that, no matter their medium, court material, perceptual, or conceptual volatility.

The group show will be spread across the five ground floor galleries of Kunsthalle Basel. Artists include Caroline Achaintre, Olga Balema, Joachim Bandau, Trisha Donnelly, Marcel Duchamp, Michaela Eichwald, Pakui Hardware, Florence Jung, Eric N. Mack, Liz Magor, Park McArthur, Nathalie Perrin, Tomo Savić-Gecan, Lucie Stahl, Alina Szapocznikow and Adrián Villar Rojas among others, who will show new and existing works.
