The project ‘PILOTENKUECHE’ supports artists and is an international art program based in Germany´s new art capital Leipzig, Germany. Hidden in an old romantic factory, the independent project is organized by artists for artists. The team operates with a trans-disciplinary background between art, theory & diverse sciences. The goal is to provide artists with a base to work from and acts as a conduit to the local art scene. The project offers a diversity of programs and invites selected artists from around the world as well as handpicked local participants. While international residents come to work at the fully remodeled studio space for a period of three months, local artists are selected to participate in the artistic program. Each accepted artist is offered a stipend, provided by ‘PILOTENKUECHE’. During the programmed events, our 465m² studio becomes an exhibition venue. Our concept strives to create a communal space for experimental collaboration and discourse between participants, as well as with the greater Leipzig community.
The project provides a range of programs, aiming to connect and engage different disciplines. Each category of our art program coalesces during a 3 months period, after which we realize a collaborative exhibition.
