translocal hi:stories of performance art
8 June – 21 August 2022
An exhibition project by Revolving Histories/Performance Chronik Basel and Museum Tinguely
All summer long, Museum Tinguely will be celebrating performance art in the show BANG BANG - translocal hi:stories of performance art. At the heart of this process-oriented exhibition is the Swiss performance scene, its players, and its networks, although the programme will be international in character.
The incredibly rich history of the medium will be presented in a unique kaleidoscope of video installations, performances, photos, and texts. BANG BANG will chart the development of performance art and redraw the contours of this constantly changing discipline. As a festival of performance art, BANG BANG is subdivided into seven thematic chapters, which on seven weekends will combine live performances, discussions, and presentations involving audiences, artists, scholars, and the museum. Whether spectacular or low-key, BANG BANG promises to be an unforgettable live experience at Museum Tinguely and the surrounding Solitude Park.
