This summer, Swiss artist Claudia Comte will take-over and transform the facade of Basel’s historical department store Globus with a large-scale installation that offers passers-by a moment of contemplation in their daily routines. Waves, Cacti and Sunsets is the first iteration of the “Globus Public Art Project”. During the three-year renovation of its iconic department store on Basel’s market square, Globus is collaborating with Fondation Beyeler on inviting artists to conceive and realize new site-specific works of art that engage with the building and its facade.

The “Globus Public Art Project” is a new initiative by the Swiss department store, realized in collaboration with Fondation Beyeler. As part of this cooperation, each year an artist will be invited to conceive and realize a work of art for the public space in and around the building.
