This Thursday saw several pilots accompany our curator Vanessa Souli to visit two gallery spaces in the East of the city. First, they browsed a collection of works from over 90 local artists on permanent exhibition at the Hotel Leipziger Hof on Hedwigstraße. The majority of the works reflected Leipzig’s vibrant history as a centre for printmaking and etching, ranging from the early 20th Century into the present day.
Next they headed towards Reudnitz for a solo exhibition featuring works from Jos Diegel, a Leipzig-based artist originally from Frankfurt. The venue, Helmut, is a non-profit organisation and are dependent on various donations and support from committed members and the public. Also located in the East of Leipzig, it is a space for art, culture and political education and the works of Job Diegel touch on these themes; questioning the social-political structures within our societies.
