2015 is a transformative year for the Kunstmuseum Basel. The new building designed by Christ & Gantenbein architects and the renovated main building will be inaugurated in 2016.

For the necessary rehabilitation works, the Kunstmuseum Basel’s main building will close its doors for a year beginning in February 2015.

Extensive selections from the holdings of the Öffentliche Kunstsammlung Basel will be on display in the Museum für Gegenwartskunst and in the Museum der Kulturen Basel during this period. The treasures of the Emanuel Hoffmann Foundation will be on display at the Schaulager starting in June 2015.
