14-18 June 2017


photo basel, Switzerland’s first and only international art fair dedicated to the photographic medium, is pleased to announce its third edition which will take place at the Volkshaus Basel. The fair will run from 14 June – 18 June 2017, coinciding with Art Basel.
photo basel brings together galleries from around the world, fostering a dialogue between members of the photographic and broader art world communities. The participating galleries will be announced in March 2017.
From its foundation year in 2015, photo basel has become established as one of the most prominent photography fairs in the German speaking world. As a fair with a high calibre range of work from both younger and more established galleries, photo basel attracts international visitors and exhibitors.
Alongside a main section focused on artists represented by established galleries, in 2017 photo basel presents a new section entitled tape/basel devoted entirely to digital, video, time and internet based art.
The non-for-profit section showcases nominees from the Young Artist’s Prize for Photography, a highly respected annual programme for undiscovered talent in Switzerland awarded by the Association of Photographers. Also featured in this section is photography from the alumni of FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Switzerland, curated by the Academy’s Director, Chus Martínez.
