Since opening in 1872, Kunsthalle Basel has examined various issues concerning contemporary art. This renowned exhibition space in the Swiss city of Basel has a very long tradition of supporting avant-garde artists and expanding the accepted boundaries of contemporary art. Contemporary art issues are also reflected in dialogue through lectures, performances and video and film projects. The historic building was renovated in 2004 by the architects Miller & Maranta and has since also housed the Swiss Architecture Museum.
