SALTS is City SALTS in Birsfelden (since 2009, next to Basel, Switzerland), Country SALTS in Bennwil (since 2020, Baselland), and Cyber SALTS (online). The 2021 program is co-curated by Samuel Leuenberger and Benedikt Wyss.

City SALTS cooperates in 2021 with Patrick Mudekereza (Director) and Véronique Poverello Kasongo ( Head of Programme) from the Waza Arts Centre in Lubumbashi (Democratic Republic of Congo); Country SALTS welcomes Yann Chateigné from the KANAL – Centre Pompidou in Brussels and art historian, curator, and researcher Gabriella Beckhurst Feijoo as guest curators; Cyber SALTS continues to work with various contributors on video series, game research, AR app, and online exhibitions.

(A Brief History)
Initially, SALTS was launched by Samuel and Anna Leuenberger in the form of an Art Salon, where one could not only be confronted with art but also engage in conversations about the production and display of art. In 2011, Swiss artist Tobias Spichtig joined the team and the name SALTS was coined. Later Quinn Latimer initiated a format called The Printed Room for text and poetry-based exhibitions which was taken over in 2015 by artist and curator Harry Burke. Between 2014 and 2019, the exhibition program was co-curated by Elise Lammer, before Benedikt Wyss took over at the beginning of 2020. SALTS enjoys regular contributions by curator Fabian Schöneich.
