"For the current exhibition entitled “Art Machines Machine Art“, the Museum Tinguely in Basel, Switzerland, turns into a production hall. “Art Machines Machine Art” presents Jean Tinguely’s drawing machines dating back to the 1950s followed by art machines down to the present day, created by Pawel Althamer (Extrusion Machine), Michael Beutler (Proper en Droog), Angela Bulloch, Olafur Eliasson (The endless study), Tue Greenfort (Mobile Trinkglaswerkstatt), Damien Hirst (Making beautiful drawings), Rebecca Horn, Jon Kessler (Desert), Tim Lewis (Auto-Dali Prosthetic), Lia, Miltos Manetas, Roxy Paine, Steven Pippin, Cornelia Sollfrank, Jean Tinguely, Antoine Zgraggen, Andreas Zybach (Sich selbst reproduzierender Sockel).
