Over 90 galleries, 30 publishers from 10 countries already from the very beginning! Passion and determination were the keys to success for Trudi Bruckner, Balz Hilt and Ernst Beyrler, founders of Art Basel fair. Their intention was to integrate modern art community to make it live, artist with collectors, galleries and public institutions and the goal was fully accomplished.
