Art | Basel

Switzerland has a good name amongst the international jet-setters when it comes to investment founds,watches and of course Art - Basel! The Worlds largest contemporary museum is a real big deal for art lovers and the wealthy jet-setters (even Leonardo DiCaprio was here) bloggers and of course artists,as it is still one of the biggest and most renowned art fair of the world with around 90000 visitors in 6 days.The public viewing took place between 17-21 June , but I was very lucky to get a "First Choice VIP" ticket on June 16th and get into the exclusive crowd of thousands of other VIP's :) You could feel the vibes and the positive energy. I was expecting some kind of private view feeling, but already on the first day there were really thousands of people trying to get the most out of the experience and of course to buy something that's worth the investment!
At the end that's what's modern art is about..the mixture of upcoming young talents and big, renowned galleries (such as my personal favourite the Gagosian gallery). Modern art makes up an interesting contrast and creates space for new ideas ..

The worlds largest exhibition had so much to share and give to us art lovers that there wasn't any chance to see it all in half a day...after so many influences the censors of the brain are just filled and one definitely needed a glass (or two) champagne at the bar specially arranged for the thirsty crowd by Ruinart Champagne.

Be sure and visit the Art - Basel site for more info and to check out the amazing art.

Big Thanks for the sponsors (UBS) and organizers for this amazing event (and to other thousands of people who worked on building it up and keep it clean). I felt truly blessed to be part of it.
I'm already looking forward to the next one :) hope to see you there next year,it's definitely gonna be FUN..:)
