What kinds of desires are embodied in objects? And how do these desires differ in objects made for a consumer market and those made in other types of economies?
For this exhibition the New York-based artist Ania Soliman connects objects from the archive of the Museum der Kulturen Basel with her own drawings and videos. She elicits patterns of meaning through unusual arrangements, including a monumental Buddha with videos of waterfalls and the Zurich Stock Exchange, 3,000 years worth of Chinese coins represented as a pile of crumpled paper, and a masterpiece from New Ireland in a trash-bag tent.
