Joining the international commemorations of the fiftieth anniversary of the death of Pablo Picasso (1881–1973), the Fondation Beyeler will present a selection of late paintings concerned with images of artist and model.

Beyeler Collection Stories
On the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Fondation Beyeler, selected highlights of the collection are made accessible to be experienced online. Under the title "Beyeler Collection Stories", the digital presentation focuses on the stories surrounding the individual artworks and artists.
FRIDAYS UNTIL 16 DECEMBER, 6–10 P.M. | The “Friday Beyeler” event series takes place on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Fondation Beyeler. Every Friday, the exhibitions, the park and the restaurant will all be open until 10 p.m.. In addition, under the title “I Hear a New World - 14 Miaows of the Future”, students and artists who teach at the Institute of Art Gender Nature at FHNW Academy of Art and Design in Basel will transform the museum foyer into a creative platform for contemporary art, featuring live performances, films, talks, music, poetry and dance.
Public vs. Private Collections
WEDNESDAY, 7 DECEMBER, 6.30–8 P.M. | Talk by Alfred Pacquement, Honorary Director of the National Museum of Modern Art, Centre Pompidou. Private collections that are open to the public and have immense resources at their disposal are increasingly competing with (or supplementing?) public museums. How can public museums continue developing nonetheless? The event will be held in French. In collaboration with the Alliance française de Bâle and the Société d'Études françaises. Admission to the museum prior to the event is included in the ticket. The exhibitions can be visited before the event.

"24 Stops" – Rehberger-Weg
The Rehberger-Weg runs approximately 5 kilometers and joins two countries, two communities, two cultural institutions – and countless stories. It runs between Riehen and Weil am Rhein, between the Fondation Beyeler and the Vitra Campus. Along the “24 Stops,” 24 milestones created by artist Tobias Rehberger (b.1966), you can explore the diverse natural and cultural landscape. The Rehberger-Weg provides the opportunity to get to know the history and stories of the area and its people while getting out into nature.
The Fondation Beyeler's main goal is to bring art and viewer together. In our guided tours and workshops, we do not only share knowledge about artists, works, and epochs. We create above all a space in which to deepen observations and exchange different views, perceptions, thoughts, and feelings.
Film and Game "Das Dingsda im Museum"
The new museum game invites children and adults to discover the works of art based on questions in a playful way and in exchange with each other. It can be borrowed free of charge from the Art Shop of the Fondation Beyeler for your museum visit and is suitable for every exhibition. Only avaible in German.
