This was the 32nd Round

Last week we said goodbye to our most recent residents. We will remember the ideas and collaborative spontaneity contributed by the second group of residents to work at our new studios! In addition we would like to thank our  friends, attendees and our supporters, as well as the broader Leipzig community for participating in our events.
