Open Call: Basilea with Recetas Urbanas
23 May - 17 June, 2018, Messeplatz, Basel

With more than twenty years of practice, Recetas Urbanas —in English Urban Recipes— has worked with more than 2,500 individuals from all around the globe and all kinds of social backgrounds, abilities and ages. During the three weeks proceeding Art Basel, and as an exercise in self-governance, Recetas Urbanas calls to work with local and international volunteers to collectively design and build a multi-purpose civic structure, using locally sourced and second-hand materials. Participants are invited to learn from and teach each other in a collective experience led by architect Santiago Cirugeda. During construction and upon completion, the structure will be open to all and activated by programs and performances that will culminate in a proposal for the structure’s future uses —such as handing it over to a local collective, association or school that will extend the meaning and usefulness of the project longer after the fair is over.

What will we be doing?
- We will drill, hammer, saw and build while listening to music and meeting new people
- We will work together in small groups under the direct supervision of Santiago Cirugeda
- We will use building materials comprised almost entirely of recycled materials
- Your ideas will be an integral part of the building process, your input will become an important part of the artwork itself
- Each day you will be surrounded by excellent company, eat good food, and, last but not least, gain a fantastic sense of accomplishment and togetherness!
