After over one year of closure, Art Basel, the world's top contemporary art fair, reopened its doors on September 22, featuring over 270 galleries from 33 countries.

First opened for renowned figures, the museum is now welcoming all visitors interested in exploring the world's top artists, new young talents, and myriads of modern classic artworks, until Sunday, according to the German News Agency (dpa).

Considered one of the largest events in the country, Art Basel was cancelled last year due to the pandemic, and was also postponed this year in July for the same reason.
