Curated for the second year by Samuel Leuenberger, Parcours returns with 22 site-specific artworks placed around Basel's historical Münsterplatz. Parcours will feature artworks by both internationally renowned and emerging artists including Ai Weiwei, Katinka Bock, Pedro Cabrita Reis, Miriam Cahn, Berlinde de Bruyckere, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Latifa Echakhch, GCC, Amanda Ross-Ho, Cally Spooner, Rirkrit Tiravanija and Wu Tsang.

Engaging with Basel’s past and present by weaving artistic interventions into the fabric of the city, this year's edition of Parcours portrays a series of intimate experiences, with artists addressing the truths that concern their daily experiences. Visitors will enter public as well as private spaces, discovering local institutions, city departments, and churches built in various centuries. These places – through their own histories and interactions with the public – will contextualize and amplify each artist’s personal thoughts.
