Kunsthaus Baselland presents Manuel Graf: Commercials, Mosques & Ceramics

Kunsthaus Baselland presents Manuel Graf: Commercials, Mosques & Ceramics an exhibition on view through 30 June 2013.

With Commercials, Mosques & Ceramics, Kunsthaus Baselland presents the first institutional solo exhibition of the German artist Manuel Graf in Switzerland. Graf’s work consists primarily of film projects, which are usually presented in the form of installations, but is also supplemented by object arrangements and assemblages. As regards content, he is interested in the great questions of human existence, such as the development of mankind, or the origin of art, architecture and craft, and last but not least, he questions how we live as human beings, what entices us and convinces us visually. His solo show at the gallery spaces of the is accessible through two entrances: a staircase leading to the room in which the latest film let music play?, 2012, is shown in an installation setting. The other staircase leads to the billboard-like video installation commercials for Jan Albers, 2013, and a presentation from neolithic memory stick, 2012–13.
