Welcome to the Grand Tour of the 21st century

The 52nd International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, the Art 38 Basel, the documenta 12 and the skulptur projekte münster 07 are pleased to invite you to a great art tour across Europe.

As a result of a once-in–ten year coincidence the three major exhibitions of contemporary visual arts, taking place every two, five and ten years respectively and the leading art fair will be opening one after another, in June 2007. The dialogue between the four institutions has produced the idea of the Grand Tour: The idea to support you with our friendly hospitality service on planning and organizing your personal route through art next summer.

For all more detailed information on the four art events please see their individual websites. For more information on the tourist activities of the cities go to:
