Liste 15, the Young Art Fair in Basel, June 15-20, 2010, is confident. "Not only do we have the best collectors," said Liste director Peter Bläuer, "but we also get all the museums." And he is right. The vernissage was packed, and the lines to get in are long. Even the VIPs are waiting, though not without a certain incredulity. Art Basel directors Annette Schönholzer and Marc Spiegler had to wait, as did collectors Susan and Michael Hort and the Rubell family.
