The location and history of the old synagoge Hegenheim already determines the cultural focus of the venue. Situated in the immediate vicinity of Basel on the french side of the border, the building was right from the beginning vitaly embedded in its trinational environment. Today le ventre continues the history. The former sacred room of the synagoge, a freestanding hall with a remarkable accoustic, lends itself particularly to performances and sitespecific art that develops over time within the space. le ventre likes contemporary relevance and values discourse on current and contemporary themes.
Philippe Karrer Studio has designed and developed the website for le ventre. An art space situated in an old synagoe showing experimental expressions across all artforms. The design concept creates a collage of all events and reflects the diverse programme of le ventre.
