A Swiss Service Station Turned Gallery
The contemporary-art world knows Basel, Switzerland, as home to outstanding public museums, blue-chip private collections, and, each June, the Art Basel fair. But what’s pretty much impossible to find in this idyllic Rhine city are the kinds of old industrial spaces where avant-garde commercial galleries like to set up shop. Unless, that is, you’re Stefan von Bartha, the 30-year-old scion of an established art family, and you happen upon a former gas station and auto shop just outside the city center.
