Art History in Basel

Study where the art is

As a city of the arts, Basel offers ideal conditions for studying art history. In the middle of Europe’s densest museum landscape, the Department of Art History imparts an education that is emphatically close to art.

The Basel Department of Art History understands the past as a present challenge to continue to develop the academic field of art history, including methodologically, and to connect our historical orientation with current problems in our age after the digital revolution. Basel is one of the places where, with Jacob Burckhardt and Heinrich Wölfflin, art history was “invented” as a discipline.
