The gallery was founded by Werner Widmer and Jordanis Theodoridis in Zurich in 2006. After eight years the gallery decided to make a few steps forward and one step out of Zurich to a new location: Eschlikon, a rural village on the countryside.
widmertheodoridis pursues artistic positions that have the potential to compete in a national and international environment. Young and established artists from the area of photography, drawing, sculpture and video present peaceful and provocative works that also receive broad attention at the fairs.
The motivation of widmertheodoridis to show exciting and extraordinary positions far away from the urban centres takes on an unusual yet not less interesting relevance. This solitary position emphasizes on the one hand the original profile of the gallery and on the other hand it underlines the uniqueness of the represented artistic works.
widmertheodoridis shows at photo basel works by Marko Zink and Sebastian Stadler. Special guest is Andreas Fux who presents his new catalogue 'Fährten'.

Claudio Composti grew up in the historic Galleria Franco Toselli, a business partner of his father Gianfranco. Claudio grew up surrounded by artists such as Boetti, Merz and Paladino. An early vocation that turned into a passion led him to open the Galleria Cà Fra with his father and sisters in 1997. Then in 2009 he found a true partner in Vincenzo Maccaronethe, together they not only share the same taste but also the passion for art.
mc2gallery has moved to a new location: a former leather-industry factory in Via Malaga 4, close to the Navigli district, behind the Pecci Museum in Milan. In the new location they organize exhibitions and cultural debates often in collaboration with the 'University of Milan. Claudio states: «Personally, I love photography, but I will not limit or characterize the line of the gallery in just one direction ... in fact we have hosted exhibitions of painting, video and photography by mixing and blending with live music and different situations: as I told you, to make the most of the versatility of the artist proposed ... the ideas come from a thousand different stimuli ... movies, books, newspaper articles, a discussion with friends ..... everything can be an incentive to invent an exhibition and then choose the artist suitable .. or, by chance, it happens that I meet artists who impress me with their work and it can happen that I invent a group show where to put them or dedicate to them a solo show... this is not a job, it's a passion that eats you up inside and you have to do somehow to realize it».

cubus-m, shifting perception
@ photo basel:
Booth: A5
The Berlin gallery cubus-m was founded by Holger Marquardt in 2010 and presents work by young and established artists. It collaborates with curators, institutions, collections and galleries in Germany and internationally, regularly taking part in international art fairs.
The focus of the interdisciplinary programme is to expose changes in the spatial, temporal and perceptual dimensions in regard to the environment. Rather than remaining purely architectural, this approach opens a social, linguistic and psychological space in which customary ways of looking and perceiving are challenged. cubus-m sees the diversity of the positions and media of the exhibited artists as an experimental site for aesthetic, conceptual and curatorial practice. In this way, the presentation of work by Mirja Busch, Wiebke Loeper and Andreas Fux at Photo Basel shows the medium of photography as a means of expression of diverse artistic approach and enquiry.

Aluägä Books is an online platform of artist books featured by Myriam Ziehli & Anne Golaz.
It is the result of a nice feeling to be surrounded by good works and great book makers; therefore we decided to gather together a selection of this flourishing production within the reach of hand. The following books are works of young photographers who started exploring the medium by playing and constructing within the book form. All of them are related to a territory -intangible and extensible, but approximately located along the Geneva lake in Switzerland. Yet our interactions, influences and exchanges are worldwide -it is absurd and impossible to try to define an identity by building a box for this list of books- but there are sparks between people and places, and here are perhaps a few.

gute aussichten (Foundation)
@ photo basel:
Booth: publisher area
Cultural partner of photo basel 2015
gute aussichten – junge Deutsche Fotografie is a project set up in 2004 by Josefine Raab and Stefan Becht as a private initiative in support of talented young photographers. The core element of the project is an annual competition for final portfolios submitted to all German universities, universities of applied sciences and academies offering a course of study in photography. A maximum of five projects per institution are eligible for entry in the competition. For the current 2008/2009 event we received a record number of over 100 entries. The winners, who are selected by a jury of well-known experts, can look forward to a public launch in various exhibitions, promotional campaigns, media and fairs such as photo basel.
The jury is made up of a panel of invited experts. Each year jury members include a famous artist and a number of different representatives from the art and culture scene in Germany. Andreas Gursky joined us for the first two years and was followed by photographers and artists Juergen Teller and Thomas Demand. Our cooperation partners from the exhibition and media sector have permanent, and also partly alternating, jury membership.
gute aussichten is first and foremost an idea. Our philosophy is to create a bridge linking young, largely unknown artists with everyone who is inspired by photography. Our appeal is to collectors or exhibitors of photography works, or anybody who uses or simply enjoys viewing photographic art. We see our role as communicators – in the widest sense – and that is why we set up diverse promotional campaigns and media ideally suited to the chosen aim.
