Where does all the plastic on our planet come from? And more importantly, where does it go to? And how can we shape the way we use this material? The recently founded organisation Precious Basel Plastic is organising workshops to accompany the exhibition Mika Rottenberg. Antimatter Factory. By bringing its specially built equipment to the museum it offers participants the chance to experience how plastic is shredded, melted and remoulded, raising their awareness of the plastic problem in the process. Some of the plastic waste is transformed into something new and beautiful to take home with you.

For adults and children from 14 years or 6 years accompanied by an adult.

Mika Rottenberg. Antimatter Factory

Mika Rottenberg’s art humorously confronts us with the absurdity of our excessive production of commodities. Her films are colourful and painterly, celebrating a surreal poetry whose protagonists often resemble cogwheels in a fantastic machine. In this way, they recall Tinguely’s critique of consumerism expressed in his poetic 'machines inutiles'. The exhibition shows a representative selection of Rottenberg’s films and installations, as well as interactive kinetic works.
