The most recent house of von Bartha was opened in 2008. Most of the gallery’s activities take place here. The gallery was built into a former car repair shop. Over 700 sqm of exhibition space accommodate up to five contemporary exhibitions a year. In addition, the gallery hosts eight to ten events for selected projects a year.
From 2008, von Bartha has been under the second generation-direction of Stefan von Bartha. The formerly two-man business – located on Schützenmattstrasse in Basel – has developed into a company of three family members and six employees.
The gallery’s relocation and expansion to a converted garage at Kannenfeldplatz has allowed for large-scale installations, performances and retrospectives. –
