Do you prefer museum-quality art and “blue chips” of the art market? Do you choose respectability over a catchy pathos? Then you definitely need to go to Art Basel. This fair does not seek to shock, relying instead on respectability, famous names, and investment potential. Given a rigorous selection process, the list of participants is still striking with some 300 galleries. To see all of them is impossible, and there’s no need to do so. We will take you through the routes that only the true art professionals take. Even more, you will meet them yourself in order to acquire useful contacts and new experience by the end of the tour.
Do you want to know what it means to live the Basel-way? Here is one of many life hacks that we are willing to share with you. In case you’ll feel like taking a break from art and people, remember that in Basel you can easily take a swim in the Rhine right in the city center. But to do so, you’ll need a “wickelfisch”. Sounds unfamiliar? Don’t you worry, we’ve done the research and have already bought it. Another secret of a beautiful life is to go to the embankment immediately after the swim and have some fine Alsatian Riesling.
