It is often the case that the best things in life are shared. Join Product/81 Creative Lab and Butter Gallery this Basel season when it opens its doors to welcome the great city of Detroit as part of the collaborative exhibition, Mi Casa es su Casa. This collaboration, inspired by the differences and similarities surrounding Miami & Detroit, will be hosted in both the Product/81 Creative Lab and the Gesamtkunstwerk building. The weeklong program, designed to house the creative community, will include a series of events, talks and a shared workspace.
