‘If paradise is half as nice #01’ (project, Leipzig, DE)

On 27 September 2012, Rotterdam artists Pim Palsgraaf and Daan Botlek impromptu decided to go to Leipzig. Being tired of the restrictions of the confined space of their studios, they travelled to the German city to use one of the many abandoned buildings there as a temporary working space. After a week of exploring various sites they settled down in the ‘Ehemalige Jutespinnerei und Weberei’ in the Lützner Straße in Leipzig/Lindenau. While working there both artists realized […]
