Nevin Aladağ

Kunsthalle Basel Rückwand: Marsch

SAHA provided support for the production of the new work Nevin Aladağ realized for Kunsthalle Basel's back wall (15 June 2014–30 April 2015).

For the back wall of Kunsthalle Basel, the artist has conceived the installation "Marsch". Here she takes up the motif of cultural transfer in music and thematizes its sociological and political background. The back wall serves as a vast sheet of music, on which the opening bars of the “Rondo alla Turca” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart are represented.
