Art moving in space
The supporting program organized by the Fondation Beyeler to accompany the exhibitions does more than create connections to literature, music, and architecture. Renowned performers and contemporary dance ensembles are also frequently invited as a part of the program. They take up the artistic idiom of the exhibited works and interpret it as movement in space, creating impressive and intimate live experiences in the museum.
