Curated by Deli Projects & Trikot

ENGL: Im Taumel der Nacht is curated by the nomadic curatorial group Deli Projects and Trikot. Trikot is a space and open platform for speculations and experiments of all kinds, founded in January 2016. Each time Deli Projects curates a project (since 2015) the collective invites artists and non-artists from various disciplines and backgrounds to explore new places, resulting in collections of site-specific thoughts. The projects are often characterized by their unexpected results, nourished and made possible only thourgh close collaboration of the artists, the curators and the peers. This time joining forces Deli Projects and Trikot enable encounters beyond the usual art experiences. Surprising and intimite encounters between everybody who’s involved: the team, the artist and scientist, the public, and of course works of art. Hand in hand all of the above mentioned discover places and issues, and open the art space with different, very personal approaches to as many people as possible. They aim to offer its visitors not only a carefully chosen program, but also to extend an invitation to people of every kind to meet in their ephemeral space. For this years edition of Museumsnight Basel both Deli Projects and Trikot are invited as so called "guest institutions". With their first joint project Im Taumel der Nacht they provide an environment that allows intimacy towards the art, other visitors, the area where we all live and work and the night itself – in the context of a mass event such as the Museumsnight Basel, which attracts over 20'000 visitors every year in January.

Im Taumel der Nacht consists of three parts:

1) The exhibition at Trikot (Haltingerstrasse 13): An artificial, site-specific apartment by Lausanne artist Christopher Füllemann with artworks from private Kleinbasel art collections.
2) The Assemblage in the Kaserne area with sculptures by Christopher Füllemann, a banner (3x7m) and a flag (2x3m).
3) The guided night tours with Basel cultural anthropologist Michel Massmünster departing from Trikot towards Kaserne.

According to the young Basel cultural athropologist Michel Massmünster the night is a landscape in motion that is permanently re-assambled. Everyone is involved in these processes. Massmünster thinks about the night as something that changes with the different elements (people, objects, ideas, knowledge, lightnings or technology) that are co-assembled throughout the night. This explains the multiple meanings of the night and its various existences. Lausanne and Zurich based artist Christopher Füllemann's works uncover different layers including the spectators and inviting them to an intimate journey. Movement and autonomy are important aspects to him, allowing his pieces to exist in conversation with the viewer, its context, its specific space and amongst each other. Müllemann is interested in crossing bridges by working with the architecture and the display of how artworks are presented in a domestic environment. With an all-over tactile intervention, the experience of the space in relation to the works presented will shift the spectator to a closer, more intimate feeling. The discussion between Füllemann and Michel Massmünster about the night as a time of transition and transformation is reflected into (sometimes performative) installations and night walks. Spectators are included into a physical participation, landscapes in motion that evolve through the night like growing organisms. The relationships between all of us are a combination that relate to the relationships of how the spectators‘s perception change with the context, from private to public as well as from time, daytime to nighttime and how we engage with these different situations. Ausstellungstext (deutsch)
