As of September 21, Switzerland has officially re-opened its doors to Photo Basel, the first international art fair dedicated to photography. This event brings together artists from around the world in a unique, authentic setting. For its collectors, visitors or buyers – Photo Basel is an active platform that fosters the dialog between all actors of the photography community and beyond. The fair runs from September 21 through September 26, coinciding with the international modern and contemporary art fair, Art Basel.

Highlights of the fair will also include the Master Cabinet dedicated to rare vintage prints (curated by Audrey Hoareau and Pauline Guex) and the first-ever showing of the NFT cabinet, which features over 35 works and rare video-based works by the likes of Tokyo Rumando, Sebastian Riemer, Yoshinori Mizutani and more.
