Territoire de la créativité Bâle

Invited to the Basel Off Fair under the direction of Ingo Kümmel, Fred Forest presented his Territoire du M2 and put it into operation with visitors for a major event lasting several days.

With the help of Elke Panten, director of Studio Panten in Cologne, and her son Fabian, he will be putting it into action with visitors to the exhibition space.

The idea is for the public to occupy an area of M2 and organise the various objects they find on site.
