Functional Art on 20.10.

Based on a conference that took place in 2002 at the Leipzig cotton-spinning mill, Frank Motz, curator of ACC Galerie Weimar and Halle 14 Leipzig, and Bertram Schultze, executive director of the mill's management company, will speak about the architectural, cultural, commercial and artistic potentials and challenges of the former factory site. Art production, presentation and trade have evolved into major activities at SPINNEREI - more than 100 artists and 13 galleries work within the community. What do we expect from an art institution of the 21st century? Can abandoned industrial spaces, given their breathtaking freedom, be assisted to a dignified senescence through the implantation of art? Is architecture only social when its aesthetic self-presentation remains inconspicuous and serves the social system rather than disturbing it in order to call attention to itself?
