In the watertank we present Congolese artist Jean Katambayi Mukendi's RE-FLEX curated by Benedikt Wyss. Trained as an electrician, Jean Katambayi Mukendi uses his knowledge of circuitry in his artworks, dramatizing the flow of energy. The materials used support his vision of a futuristic, equalized global economy.

The exhibition series is part of the tricontinental collaboration with artists from Europe, South America, and Africa initiated and developed together with Waza Art Center, Lubumbashi.

Open on Fridays 2–5 PM, during Art Basel Fr–Sun 2–6 PM, Kunsttage Basel 2–4 September Fr–Sun 10 AM–6 PM, closed 8 July–8 August
