the last days in Chimalistac
Leonor Antunes exposure in Kunsthalle Basel in 2013, titled Last days in Chimalistac, was the first comprehensive presentation of the Portuguese artist in Switzerland. In her installations and sculptures made of metal, leather and wood, Antunes confronts the history of twentieth century architecture through design and art.
This publication focuses on the visual representation of the work of Antunes, noting the fragility and beauty of architecture. It contains an essay by the director of the Kunsthalle Basel and curator Adam Szymczyk, and texts by Clara Porset , Anni Albers and Lina Bo Bardi.
