White Frame (WF) produces and curates exhibitions and screenings, offering artists greater visibility for their art. Established in 2011 in Basel, Switzerland, our non-for-profit nomadic association operates mainly at the intersection of video art, cinema and photography. We strive to forge national and international networks and generate collaboration. We initiate and implement projects and facilitate exchange between Swiss and international artists, institutions, independent curators, festival programmers, writers and the public.
