A step inside "14 Rooms"
The oldest trade fair hall in Basel has been transformed by the architects Herzog & de Meuron into an art space subdivided into 14 rooms. From the foyer, they are nearly indistinguishable, down to their doorknobs, but inside each there is a unique work of performance art. For the curatorial heavyweights Hans Ulrich Obrist and Klaus Biesenbach, each room contains “a living sculpture where the sculptures go home at night”. All photos by David Owens.
