Large-scale music machines
A museum was dedicated to the deceased Swiss artist Jean Tinguely precisely 20 years ago in Basel. Some of his sonorous sculptures are currently on display there. The large-scale machines produce noises, sounds and create music seemingly by chance – jingling, rattling, music-making art of timeless charm.
The “Music Machines/Machine Music” exhibition at the Museum Tinguely in Basel runs from 19 October 2016 to 22 January 2017.
