WHAT’S ON IN LEIPZIG
TABLE OF CONTENTS
Through 13 October
“WE ARE THE (MIDDLE)FINGER TO THE FACE OF CULTURAL LETHARGY”
“In Leipzig, on the facility ground of the old Pittlerwerke, we will create the largest gallery space in Germany, where street and contemporary art, graffiti, installation, music, performance, and fine art are combined to form a total work of art, that celebrates the intelligence-of-many.
“With artists of different disciplines, we will combine opposites and let differences crash.”
“On top: Food, live acts, and: ArtRaves in our Monumenta Club.
“Wandelism-Style. We don’t fuckin care about labels or borders. We fuck (with) them. And celebrate the shit out of it.”
Oct 5 at 7 PM – Oct 7 at 8 PM
Nearly every corner of Leipzig seems to be brimming with art. The weekend of October 5-7 in Lindenau is no exception, with the annual event LINDENOW, celebrating its 10-year anniversary.
Promoting independent art spaces in Leipzig’s westside is the mission of the Verein zur Förderung unabhängiger Kunsträume im Leipziger Westen e. V. This includes the areas of Lindenau, Plagwitz and Leutzsch, respectively.
Temporary installations of contemporary art will be on view at unconventional and unusual venues during the LINDENOW festival, under the motto “Because it is now, and now is always” (Denn es ist jetzt, und Jetzt ist immer). Embracing the eternity of now are 48 artistic positions.
The feature exhibition, DESTILLAT, located at Kaufhaus HELD. focuses on the themes of urban spaces and structures in transition.

KLASSIK Underground is a cooperation between the Gewandhaus and Moritzbastei. Guest soloists and stars of the classical music world who are performing with the Gewandhaus orchestra perform late night after shows in the neighbouring Moritzbastei club for younger audiences in a relaxed atmosphere – with bar service.
18 November, 8PM
“Also in November we expect a high-profile guest at KLASSIK underground. We look forward to Alan Gilbert, Chief Conductor of the New York Philharmonic until 2017, and in the same position with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra from 2019 onwards.
“But on this night, Alan Gilbert will not be on stage as a conductor, but as a musician. Together with musicians of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, which he has often conducted, he will perform the String Sextet in G major by Johannes Brahms. This work is one of Brahms’s most original compositions; it surprises the listener in each movement with unexpected twists and variations.
“One thing is for sure – the musician and the man Alan Gilbert will never be as close to you as he is on this evening in the Moritzbastei.”
Female Entrepreneurs and Creatives in Leipzig
“For all you ladies who wanna make stuff happen, join us! We meet every other Tuesday at 7 pm in Basislager to learn from and with each other in an interactive format (e.g. topics like target customer, your own brand, and thoughts on ‘fear’). And of course, there is always time for networking, sharing experiences, helping each other, and just having a lot of fun together. (Deutsch und English, yes both!)”
