The Tapetenwerk, an art complex on the site of a former wallpaper factory, has been offering space for creative people in eight factory buildings since 2007.
Nearly 20 artists wield the tools of their trade in the old industrial halls. Their work is exhibited in on-site galleries. Furthermore, design and artisan businesses have established themselves. If you don't have your own office, you can rent a spot in the co-working community "Raumschiff" (Space Station) in the Leipzig Tapetenwerk.
Twice a year, the Tapetenwerk also hosts the "Tapetenwerkfest", a festival which offers visitors a peek behind the scenes with new exhibitions, music and culinary specialities. Talk to the designers, photographers and architects in their own studios.
