Hall 1, U43, Messe Basel
NEWS FROM NOWHERE begins with contemplating the social function and role of art. Initially proposed by two artists,
MOON KYUNGWON & JEON JOONHO, the project aims to reflect upon the direction that contemporary art practices; what is the real meaning of contemporary art? El Fin del Mundo (The End of the World) examines the meaning of art in a future era where, as envisioned by the artists, all social values and order have vanished. MOON and JEON have attempted to examine the future through collaborative projects with artists, designers, and architects. Furthermore, experts from other diverse fields - education, economics, politics, culture, and religion - will join this practical platform for an in-depth conversation that aims to reflect on society as a whole and suggest a vision for the future.
