The Kunstkraftwerk boasts international exhibitions, symposia, readings, concerts, parties and culinary delights on an area of over 2,000 square metres, just a few metres away from the Spinnerei, Westwerk and Tapetenwerk. The focus is always on you, the visitor. You are invited to discover, learn, be amazed, have fun. Your inspiration is like energy for the artificial power plant.

Within a short time, the Kunstkraftwerk has established itself as a highly sought-after centre for contemporary art and culture in Europe. The current focal point is IMMERSIVE ART, in which visitors dive into works of art via multimedia shows and installations. In January 2018, the "RENAISSANCE experience" project - a two-year three-part art cycle that plunges visitors digitally and immersively into the most important masterpieces of the Renaissance - will be launched at the Leipzig Kunstkraftwerk. In Part I, "Florence and the Uffizi Gallery", the treasures of the Uffizi Gallery come to life again.
