This summer, the Museum Tinguely in Basel will celebrate its twenty-fifth anniversary by weighing anchor and embarking on a very special journey. Museum Tinguely AHOY! is devoted to taking the art of Jean Tinguely (1925–1991), one of the greatest and most innovative Swiss artists of the twentieth century, to the people on a specially converted barge. The stations of the MS Evolutie will be places of relevance to Tinguely’s artistic career, from Paris to Antwerp and Amsterdam, and from there upriver through the ur-ban centers of the Rhine-Ruhr region and back to Basel.
Krefeld was an important station in Tinguely’s career. His first museum exhibition worldwide took place here in 1960 at Haus Lange, a dependence of the Kunstmuseen Krefeld since 1955. The Kunstmuseen Krefeld is therefore very pleased to be involved in this special project of Museum Tinguely. The museum ship Evolutie will dock at the promenade in Krefeld-Uerdingen on August 25 & 26. There, visitors can view the exhibi-tion dedicated to Tinguely, Et tout ceci est vrai!, for which free online tickets can be booked via the Museum Tinguely website.
The ship will also host free workshops for schools in the morning (already fully booked) and for children and families on thursday afternoon from 2:30 to 4:30 pm (still bookable): Message in a Bottle. For more information and to register, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In conjunction with this special project, the Kaiser Wilhelm Museum is presenting a room with works by Jean Tinguely as part of the series Collection in Motion. 15 Rooms, 15 Stories.
