Formerly the largest cotton spinning mill in continental Europe, it is known far beyond the borders of Leipzig and is one of the most interesting locations for exhibiting contemporary art and culture.

Over 100 artists' studios and eleven galleries and exhibition spaces have taken up residence in the old mill since the end of cotton yarn production in 1992, forming a centre of the Leipzig art scene that is unrivalled worldwide. Among the pioneers of revival was none other than the famous painter Neo Rauch.
