For the second time, IPIHAN this year collaborated with ‘Tag der Industriekultur‘. And just like in Vlissingen a few months earlier, this was a legal event. The owner of the building had become quite enthusiastic about the event and provided the building to be used as an exhibition space. These circumstances made it possible to put more […]

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

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 […]
