IDEA: An overview of sound and music related art away from the main fair in Basel.
WHAT: PART V : Zimoun’s sound art installation for Sennheiser at Ostquai. Off-fair Ping Pong Basel at Projektraum M54 (including some proper punkrock), and an off-fair exhibition at the CRAC Alsace Centre for Contemporary Art, ’Hidden Poems’ sets off in search of poems which already exist but are concealed on record sleeves.
WHY: A status quo of sound and music in contemporary art.
