During this year’s Art Basel, Schaulager presents Catasterism in Three Movements, a new work by Jonathan Bepler and Matthew Barney. The performance includes a new symphonic composition by Jonathan Bepler, to be performed as a premiere by the Basel Sinfonietta, while Matthew Barney has collaborated with dancers K.J. Holmes and Sandra Lamouche on new choreography. Holmes and Lamouche will reprise and expand on their roles in Barney’s recent film Redoubt (2018). The three-act performance will take place at Schaulager, where artwork by Barney and by the 19th-century American painter Albert Bierstadt will be on view.

The project continues the series of commissioned works that Laurenz Foundation, Basel, has initiated and enabled since its founding, alongside the major exhibitions at Schaulager.

70 artists, including Matthew Barney, Ida Ekblad, Julian Schnabel and Thomas Struth, have come together in a call to support the NGO Artists at Risk. Each artist has donated a print to be offered in an open edition. All sale proceeds will help artists who are impacted by the war in Ukraine to gain safety by facilitating emergency travel, shelter and financial support.

This initiative was organized by Adam Broomberg in partnership with recom ART GmbH & Co. KG. 

The prints are available for sale here until 30 April.
