Production and Exhibition Platform basis e.V.
The Production and Exhibition Platform basis e.V. promotes the production and reception of young contemporary art at two levels. Firstly, the nonprofit association offers a support program for young artists and creative producers from applied disciplines, with a view to improving conditions of production of creative works in Frankfurt am Main. The association makes reasonably priced studio space available and additionally supports young artists in the early phase of their professional careers in other ways.
Secondly, basis develops an ongoing program of events and exhibitions to present outstanding contemporary international artists and their works in themed group shows as well as solo exhibitions. Further, the discursive events program opens up many paths of access to highly topical issues in contemporary art practice. The program focuses on art’s reflexive potential to establish points of contact between social, political, and scientific models for tackling questions of current social importance.
