Slice A Slanted Arc Into Dry Paper Sky
Slice A Slanted Arc Into Dry Paper Sky is the first exhibition in Europe of the three exiled Iranian artists Ramin Haerizadeh (*1975), Rokni Haerizadeh (*1978) und Hesam Rahmanian (*1980), living in Dubai. The exhibition encompasses their far-reaching, eccentric cosmos of film, painting, drawing and installation. Both a stage and a film studio, the exhibition is used to produce works and involve artist friends or accidental acquaintances into the production of their art.
Artist talk with Daniel Baumann, Tuesday, February 24, 6.30 pm
Hannah Weiner (1928 - 1997)
This show, curated by young Basel curator Franziska Glozer, portrays the in every sense extraordinary poetry of American writer Hannah Weiner (1928 –1997). Her writing centers on the word in all its variations as it describes, laughs, interrupts, commands and desires to be expressed without drawing a breath.

Theater der Überforderung
Directed by Zurich’s director Barbara Weber, part of Kunsthalle Zürich turns into a multi-genre playhouse. At its center lies the radical work of the Japanese playwright, poet, photograph and moviemaker Terayama Shuji (1935-1983) and the question what happens, when a play, an exhibition, a performance, the costumes and the bar continuously exchange roles and strain their ascribed notions. All practices, discussions, lectures, and shows are open to the public during opening hours from April 14 to May 17. With participation from Carl Hegeman, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, Lily Koper, Tobias Madison, Madlaina Peer, Thomas Strässle, et al.Press Release

The American poet Hannah Weiner (1928–97) saw words, wrote them down, and enacted them. What do they mean for us today? How to see what she saw, read what she wrote, hear what’s still there? Conceived together with Franziska Glozer, the curator of this exhibition, this full-day homage offers an in-depth workshop on questions of translation and typography, a series of newly staged readings of Weiner’s work by and conversations with contemporary artists.
