The Rare Ability to Become Ocean
— A method for Ocean literacy

Istituto Svizzero, Rome
14 – 21 July, 2019

The question of Nature has been placed at the core of the Art Institute’s curricula in Basel for more than three years already. We became aware that the questions related to Nature and those on Gender contain interchangeable notions in many respects. For this reason, we have been inviting special guests to our seminars such as scientists, philosophers and artists…

WE ARE / KUNST

welcome

How to introduce an institute of art? This is probably the most difficult task for a place that is many things: an institution, with norms and rules, and a community with idiosyncrasies and moods. It still seems like a luxury today to be able to encompass these two elements, as well as the courses, the teaching, the learning, the discovery of one’s self, one’s practice through the encounter of others, artists, friends, individuals, and practitioners who try things out in ways that are not «innovative» or «experimental», but just investigative, insistent, curious, empathic, humble, and yet stubborn, personal, and full of hope for a work, a process, a performance, a gesture that will help to connect.

Promise No Promises: The Podcast!

A podcasts series produced jointly by the Art Institute and Instituto Susch / Art Stations Foundation CH

Gender

The Women’s Factor

The Women’s Center for Excellency is a think tank tasked to asses, develop, and propose new social languages and methods to understand the role of women in the arts, culture, science and technology, as well as in all knowledge areas that are entangled with the field of culture today.

Ocean

Art Is Ocean

Following our program Art Is Science, in the spring of 2017 we started a new series of seminars, public lectures, and symposiums dedicated to the oceans. This series continues with an expanding interest in research, experience, and the way artists inquire into nature and the disciplines that traditionally study it. It also initiates our collaboration with TBA21–Academy, a foundation committed to creating opportunities for artists and scientists to develop a new way of thinking about the seas, as well as a space inside education and art to address crucial questions on the future of life.
