For 14 Rooms curators Klaus Biesenbach and Hans Ulrich Obrist invited international artists to each activate a room and explore the relationship between space, time, and physicality with an artwork whose “material” is the human being. Giving visitors an insight into a more performative and interactive practice, the exhibition allows visitors to encounter a new situation within each of the fourteen rooms and engage in a diverse series of immersive and intimate experiences. 14 Rooms will feature works by celebrated international artists within a spectacular architectural environment conceived by Herzog & de Meuron. Two additional works serve as an epilogue (Wolfson) and an archival documentation (Baldessari), challenging the very notions of live art and the human experience as set out in 14 Rooms. With an overarching exhibition design, the project is a collaboration between Fondation Beyeler, Art Basel, and Theater Basel.Artists featured: Marina Abramovic, Allora & Calzadilla, Ed Atkins, John Baldessari, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Damien Hirst, Joan Jonas, Laura Lima, Bruce Nauman, Otobong Nkanga, Roman Ondák, Yoko Ono, Tino Sehgal, Santiago Sierra, Jordan Wolfson, Xu Zhen Exhibition: Art Basel 14.-22.6.2014
