The artworks, which are presented in the hotel’s “Art Passage”, enrich the elegant interior design of the Euler. So, your discovery journey of the cultural city Basel starts right at our hotel.

THE CURRENT EXHIBITION AT THE HOTEL EULER:

“TANGO SERIES” OF BETTINA COSTA

In collaboration with the curator Dr. Nadja Borer we present selected pieces from the recently created “Tango Series” of Bettina Costa from 2nd September 2016 till end of January 2017.

The exhibition includes poethic, pastel coloured acrylic paintings, as well as colourful, street art influenced collages. Main subject are tightly nestled bodies of Tango dancing couples. With her very own technique the artist succeeds in showing motion, passion and music in her works. They are like an invitation to Argentina to experience the magic of dancing Tango.

THE ARTIST BETTINA COSTA

Bettina Costa was born 1965 in Rosario (Argentina). Since 2001 she lives in Switzerland.

Her journey as an artist started with a realistic style. Understanding that a picture has not exactly to look like the reality it illustrates, gave her wings for the world of abstraction. The topic “Tango”, which is the common theme in all of her current works, is inspired by the longing for her country of birth Argentina, the place of origin of this passionated dance.
