kunsthallekleinbasel is an independent artist-run initiative which runs self-supporting. Founded in 2014 the initiative was located in an inhabited apartment in Basel (Switzerland) where over 40 one-day exhibitions took place focussing on the presence of the artists and collective experience. The project operates self-supporting and focuses on the cooperation between freelance artists, curators, and educators. Since 2018 the initiative is based in a shared studio in the center of Basel. The project was founded and is run by the artist, curator and educator Jasmin Glaab.

At Supermarket Art Fair 2019 the artist-run initiative kunsthallekleinbasel presents the group exhibition RE:ACT with works by five artists and a short presentation of two associated initiatives. The exhibition includes paintings by the Hungarian artist Levente Fazekas. An interactive installation by the Basel based artist Mirjam Spoolder invites visitors to linger. The artist and art historian Ana Vujić presents ink drawings and represents the art space VOLTAGE and VOLTAGE PRESS from Basel. Fabian Frei and Silja Zimmermann intervene throughout the fair and in public space. Beside that they represent the Swiss art festival GUCK MAL GÜNTHER KUNST, which takes place annually in Lenzburg. The show is curated by Jasmin Glaab and Roy Andres Hofer.
