Kunsthalle Restaurant, Avant-Gouz, and Swimming in the Rhine: Elena Filipovic’s Basel

All this week in preparation for Art Basel 2019, we’re hearing from leading design, art, culture, and lifestyle experts on how they enjoy Basel.

“The quantity, variety, and, above all, quality of museums and cultural institutions in such a small city is unparalleled. In terms of food, there is nothing quite like the ambience of the nearly 150-year-old Kunsthalle Restaurant. From Pablo Picasso and Robert Ryman through Anicka Yi, Anne Imhof, and Geumhyung Jeong, every artist who has ever shown at Kunsthalle Basel has eaten there. And there is this stunning room at the back where Verner Panton’s sprawling mother-of-pearl chandelier, originally made for his own home in 1972, was recently installed. This year during Art Basel, I hear that the Swiss artist Pauline Beaudemont and friends will open their own small artist-run restaurant with an affordable lunch menu and curated afternoon program, so look out for that. In my free time, I swim in the Rhine when the weather allows, have brunch at Avant-Gouz, and love to have sunset drinks at Landestelle, located at Basel’s old harbor.”

Elena Filipovic, Director of Kunsthalle Basel
