Moltkerei Werkstatt


moltkerei
Moltkerei Werkstatt was founded by Elisabeth Jappe as a workshop and presentation space for experimental artistic forms at the beginning of 1981. Since then, the priority has been on projects that connect various artistic media. Moltkerei Werkstatt is dedicated especially to the spheres of installation, sound performance and sound installation as well as the analysis of overarching media, e.g. video installations. A special emphasis is on making creative processes experienceable, by giving artists the opportunity to live and work in Moltkerei Werkstatt over a longer period, and thus to mature their projects in situ. This offers the public the chance to familiarise themselves with the artists’ thinking and working methods in presentations, open studio situations and discussions. The programme comprises a mixture of international renowned and young, still unknown artists. In this way a high artistic standard is ensured while start-up support is offered to young artists.
