14 graduates from the Master of Fine Arts course at the Institute for Art, FHNW and another guest student from HKB Bern exhibit together at Kunsthalle Basel.

Installations and site-specific interventions will be on show at Kunsthalle Basel next to film and video works. You can also find photographic works that are in parts by-product, and to some extent the result of complex theoretical argumentation. Scenic positions will be presented, contrary to those of the traditional medium, as independent and contemporary works; both abstract and figurative. The choice of media is as diverse as the theoretical backgrounds of the works. References to art history are as topical as short-term political discussions or philosophical trains of thought.

The show distinguishes itself primarily by the variety of the individual, independent, artistic positions, for which in principle no limits were set regarding the choice of media or artistic intentions. The exhibition of the Master course shows that during the course fifteen entirely different, but self-contained and coherent artistic positions have developed.
