Visiting: East Side Continued // 09.11.17

Last week, we continued visiting Leipzig’s east side endeavors.  We made our regular visit with Hannes Uhlenhaut, co-founder of Studio Paunsdorf. We were once more welcomed at his ceramic & mixed media collective atelier, where he introduced us to his practice and to ongoing kiln experiments. We discussed strategies in contemporary sculpture, the ways of accommodating technical needs and of how to incorporate the implications of a medium.

After taking a break for a late lunch and Baklava, we continued to Krudebude, a community initiative led by students in the field of cultural studies and business. We were introduced to the multipurpose galleries, used for exhibitions from international artists, shows, and DIY workshops such as ‘Tools for Fools.’ Thank you for having us!

We ended our day at an opening at Salon Similde, and even had some time for the excellent home made cooking at the Volxkuchen beside the gallery.

OPEN CALL FOR LOCAL PARTICIPANTS April – June 2018

“PILOTENKUECHE” is looking for artists from around Leipzig to participate in the “Local Participants Program” for a period of three months. This program aims to support the local art scene and to connect it to international artists.

 

Each accepted artist is offered a full stipend, provided by “PILOTENKUECHE” and financed by a private donor. We maintain engagements with several partners, and by introducing our artists to these, make it possible for participants to cooperate with and exhibit in other venues. Our concept encourages experimental strategies and embraces a trans-disciplinary ethos, aiming to provide our participants with the experience of accomplishing something collectively. In a group of around eleven international artists working in the space and two local participants participating on our program activities, a stimulating dialogue becomes vital in fostering an independent position in one’s work while binding the individuals temporarily within the group, which leads to a long-term network that exists even after the program is over.

Visiting: East and Central Leipzig // 26.10.17

Last week, we were led through a history and art related tour in the east of Leipzig. At our first stop at  “Pögehaus e.V.” Jan Keilhauer gave us an introduction to the aims of collective community endeavors in the east, in times of rapid gentrification. During our walking tour we stopped to speak at the old site of PILOTENKUECHE, as well as at an underground gallery Bistro 21. Our east-side tour ended with an evening visit to an opening at the MdbK.
