The 100-year-old former power station with industrial aesthetics is an exceptional cultural site for contemporary art, culture and design.
Kunstkraftwerkis located in the west of Leipzig - a former industrial district that is now a trendy suburb. After the closure of the power plant in 1992 (commissioning in 1900), it stood empty for several years and was acquired and refurbished in 2012. The focus of its new use is on presenting immersive and digital art.
The spectacular "Immersive Art Shows" immerse visitors into the renaissance era with "LEONARDO DA VINCI - RAFFAEL - MICHELANGELO", take you into the world of the painter with "HUNDERTWASSER experience", let the charm and power of "WORK IN PROGRESS" of an industrial building, or simply enchant with "The Wonder Worlds of Alice".
This immersive art is a form of art experiment that allows a wider audience to feel a new sensory experience. The viewer no longer stands in front of the work or the stage, now the viewer is in the center and becomes an integral part of the work.
Accompanying the immersive shows, Kunstkraftwerk showcases exhibitions of international artists featuring contemporary, international and media-based art. The works range from photography to video art to interactive audiovisual installations.
In addition, company events, private parties, congresses, readings, concerts and various other events take place over an area of over 2000 square meters. The focus is always on our visitors.
