Basel to get an artifical sky

A colourful tapestry of images will hang in the streets above Basel for more than three months this summer, creating new spaces and atmospheres.

The translucent display entitled Citysky (Stadthimmel) opens on Friday and will be suspended in Basel's sky until September 14.

Nine different artists – local and international – have been invited to design huge awnings of mesh vinyl that seem to float between the city's building facades. The public exhibition stretches for three kilometres, snaking its way through the roads from the main train station to the exhibition halls square (Messeplatz) in Klein-Basel.
