Photo Basel is Switzerland's first international art fair dedicated to photography based art, the only pure photography fair parallel to Art Basel.


photo basel brings together galleries from around the world in a unique, authentic setting. Be it collectors, visitors or buyers – photo basel fosters the dialog between all actors of the photography community.

 photo basel takes place at Volkshaus Basel, a compound smoothly renovated by acclaimed Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron that contains various cultural highlights such as a bar, restaurant, event spaces, a club, a biergarten and soon also a hotel. Volkshaus Basel is located on Rebgasse 12-14 that is 700 meters away from Art Basel fairground what makes photo basel the closest art fair to Art Basel. 

Photography has, in more recent years, established itself within museums and the art market. During Art Basel week, photo basel wants to enhance and nourish the creative trade of all the major art players within and around photography.

People from photo basel are striving to create a hub for artistic photography in the cultural capital of Switzerland, Basel. Their goal is to ignite photography in Basel for the long haul. Their vision is that each exhibitor, collector, aficionado and visitor together are creating a unique Photo Basel DNA.

At photo basel, galleries will exhibit artists from all ages and eras as long as their artwork contains a significant/majority amount of photography. To enrich and broaden photo basel’s content, Photo Basel will provide a program about and for photography contents with the aim to bring photography closer to the audience, to the public as well as collectors. 


For the first time, photo basel will introduce its showcase sector devoted entirely to digital, video, time and net based art, a new initiative will go by the name of tape/basel.
