Matthias Hvass Borello recently visited our studio in Geneva and we were curious ; after all, it is not every day that Danish art critic, editor and co-founder of kunsten.nu pays us a visit.
Matthias talked to us about his projects development, why criticism is important and his vision of engagement between the wider public and contemporary art.
Base recently interviewed the Belgian collective Hell’O Monsters!
English summary: After growing to become an important player in the Brussels art scene, six-hands Belgian collective Hell’O Monsters is about to conquer the rest of the world. Using monsters as a way to engage viewers in their complex universe drawn from a mix of recurring themes and inspirations, their means of expression are expanding from the original paper surface to wall paintings, installations and collaborations with fashion labels. Don’t miss their forthcoming exhibition, running in Brussels’ Alice Galerie from the 14th of November 2013 to the 20th of December 2013.

Arno Baudin, Base’s Design Director in New York, had the opportunity of interviewing Mike D on Beastie Boys’ relationship with visual language and videos.
Three months ago, Base was asked to participate in a project called “Image of the Studio.” A rich and informative exhibition of over 75 current New York graphic design studios, the show presents original work and portraits from each studio, as well as a range of data designed to document the structure, history and culture of each.
Base partner Thierry Brunfaut has decided to quit Facebook. Here’s why.
Does it really make people as unhappy as he and this recent article proclaim?
Base is now on typographicposter.com website !
typo/graphicposters is a platform for inspiration and promotion of good design through the poster culture and was stablished online on 11 November 2008 to gather and showcase the love for type and design in a medium that connects to our essence.
Stay tuned for André’s interview coming soon…
