Ania Bas

Ania Bas

Ania Bas is an artist and writer. Through her practice she explores how narratives shape understanding, mythology and knowledge of places and people. Her work takes diverse forms of text, events, walks, performances, useful object and publications. She creates situations that support dialogue and exchange and question existing frameworks of participation. She investigates ways of working, making and thinking together and making art relevant in everyday life.

Ania is a co-founder of The Walking Reading Group (2013 - ongoing). Her debut novel is going to be published in June 2022.

Recent commissions by Alchemy Film & Moving Image Festival (2021), Coventry Biennial - Communiqué Two (2020), Heart of Glass and New Art West Midlands (2020), Tate London (2019).

As part of the Walking Reading Group, Ania organised Ash Walk #2 for Whitstable Biennale in Summer 2018, and subsequently led A New Career In A New Town with Sally O’Reilly and Kit Caless in autumn 2018.
