Rooms Look Back
The book Rooms Look Back addresses the idea that rooms are able to look back. The centre stage were rooms as places in which alternative or fictive narrations can be constructed. The artists Rosa Barba, Ursula Mayer and Margaret Salmon were concerned with different representations of theatrical, real or fictional concepts of space in the medium of film and presented their works each in one of the rooms on the ground ﬂoor of Kunsthalle Basel. Furthermore, alternating projects under the title “Inserts” took place: “inserted” one after the other, the works by Manuela Leinhoß, Swantje Hielscher and Davide Cascio extended and contrasted with the exhibition’s theme using sculpture, object, drawing, and collage.
