The year 2000, the new millennium took place, saw also the birth of the Nordstern. Intended as an artist’s workshop and presentation-room for people engaged in the cultural sector of Basel, Nordstern is today a melting pot for culture, art and music, a place where ideas get reality and where visions find their acoustic and visual fulfillment.
Located in the old “Unterwerk” of Basels Power Plant, Nordstern has profiled itself over the last ten years as an open and broad-minded culture-institution in Basel, an institution, that animates, that touches and moves – culture without any blinder and with it’s finger on the pulse of time.
Without destroying Nordstern’s industrial flair, the location has been completely redesigned in September 2010. The location now presents itself as an interactive meeting place for creatives from different sectors and as a visionary living room for people with a sense for quality and on the search for something extraordinary.
