#Throwbackthursday

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. –
