The works on display range from paintings, graphics, photographs, collages and sculptures to installations as well as video and media art. Many temporary exhibitions and other interdisciplinary projects deal, among other things, with the social role of art and aesthetics, the legacy of the GDR, and art from Eastern and South Eastern Europe in an international context.

From Cotton to Culture...

Formerly the largest cotton spinning mill in continental Europe, the area is now one of the most interesting locations for the production and exhibition of contemporary art and culture.

Group tours of the Spinnerei site are available from Tuesday to Saturday. Customised group tours are available on request.

The in-depth tour lasts approx. 2 hours. The tour provides a glimpse into the history and development concept of the cotton spinning mill. You can also visit the archive, 4-6 of the 14 galleries, exhibition areas and two workshops (no artists' studios).

Walking through the listed halls and cellars today, you can feel their history with your hands. The foundations of the boilers have been preserved, as well as a coal funnel, a dust filter, steam distributors, conveyor belts, the control centre and much more - not post-industrial charm, but authentic memories.

Individual guided tours through the IMMERSIVE ART multimedia shows and installations or behind the scenes can be arranged.
