Art Basel 2009
The 40th edition of Art Basel, the world´s premier international art show for Modern works, takes place in Basel, Switzerland, from today till the 14th of June, 2009. Art Basel marks the annual reunion of the international artworld and this year, more than 300 exhibiting galleries from all over the globe were selected from a record number of more than 1,100 applications. More than 2,500 artists, ranging from the great masters of Modern art to the latest generation of emerging stars, are represented in the show’s multiple sections. With everyone talking about the crisis, we are curious to see what kind of business is going to be made this year. Keeping in mind of course that the price of contemporary art is the price of competition and manipulation.
