What is a Draisine? We really don’t know.
The Draisine Derby (Draisinenrennen) was initiated in 2016 as a sports-art happening for Basel‘s former industrial freeport Dreispitz – to turn the area on the outskirts of the city into a meeting zone. Craftsmen, art institutes, pubs, construction companies, a Hindu temple – tiny to huge enterprises hustle and bustle in a confined space, and little happens between them. Where can diversity be activated? On rails. With the conviction that sporting events do not have to be commercial and unaesthetic. It is not only speed that is rewarded. In addition to the audience prize, an award for the most beautiful failure will be presented, and as the main prize, another 1,000 francs for the jury award. To celebrate the 5th derby, Christoph Merian Verlag is publishing a large-format photo book with video app.
