springhouse is an exhibition format combining research, artist in residency, a programme of performances and a festival. So far, springhouse has taken place four times in Dresden. The springhouse curators, Anna Bründl and Sven Christian Schuch, have been invited by Dieter Jaenicke, the director of HELLERAU – European Centre for the Arts, Dresden, to adapt and re-arrange their exhibition format for the Festival Theatre.

The project will focus on Hellerau Festival Theatre, its neighbouring buildings (the office building with rehearsal studio, east wing) and the outdoor area with the “Golgi Park” intercultural garden. The entire grounds shall be “appropriated” by the artists invited to the event, transformed, repositioned and symbolically reinterpreted. The main point is to understand and experience the HELLERAU site as a workplace for artists.
