BIOGRAPHY

Patrick Moser graduated in history, comparative religious studies and jurisprudence in 2008. From 2009 to 2011 he was a research assistant at Basel Historical Museum, where he worked on two major exhibitions: In der Fremde. Mobilität und Migration seit der Frühen Neuzeit and SCHULDIG – Verbrechen. Strafen. Menschen. Thereafter he served as director of the Museum Kleines Klingental for two years, where he co-organized several shows, including Die Kaserne in Basel, Gian Casty, and Schaufensterkultur as well as preparing the text of the new rules for the running of the museum to be agreed by Basel’s Governing Council (“Verordnung betreffend des Museum Kleines Klingental”).

After a phase as a freelance historian, doctoral candidate at the ETH Zurich and HR consultant at the RAV, Patrick Moser returned to Basel Historical Museum in June 2017 as curator of contemporary history. He and his research assistant are building up a new department of contemporary history and preparing an exhibition called Grenzfälle. Basel 1933–1945 for May 2020.
