Pretty clothes are fun and contribute to our individuality. But how are the designs created? What narratives from the worlds of science, business, politics and power, exoticism, belonging and exclusion are hidden in the yarn? How do clothes and jewellery impact on our bodies? In StrawGold and other exhibitions we encounter many objects that tell us about the way we dress and invite us to explore the links to other clothing traditions in the world and, thus, question our own fashion criteria.

Sun, Moon and Stars

What are stars: gods or celestial bodies? Omens or phenomena? Across the ages peoples have cultivated their own ideas about the sun, the moon and the stars, as a statue of the Aztec sun god Tonatiuh, a Japanese moon calendar, and the example of a pocket sundial go to show. The guided tour explores how heavenly bodies were viewed, represented and interpreted across cultures with the help of a fascinating array of artefacts, ranging from everyday items to powerful ritual objects.

Visions for the Future
15 November 2018, 18:30 - 21:00 PM

A series of photographs reveals how exhibiting has changed between 1893 and 2018. Students from the University of Basel are invited to continue the series: how do they see the museum’s future? A committee then selects the ten best photographs and presents them to the audience. The prizes are to be awarded Prof. Dr. Andrea Schenker-Wicki, rector of the University of Basel.

Highlight in december: Finale
Passing the Baton to the Basel Minster
9 December 2018, 10:00 AM - 20:00 PM

The eventful year ends with a token of good neighbourliness: we pass on the anniversary baton to the Basel Minster, which in 2019 is celebrating its consecration one thousand years ago. Together with Minster Reverend Caroline Schröder we cross the Minster Square in a festive procession – with a boat from our collections in tow to symbolize the crossing. Temporarily the vessel will lie at anchor in the nave of the Minster.

 

A rich and varied programme throughout the day in the Museum and the Minster.
