We are united! Five Artist Residency programs from Leipzig, Germany have come together to present a united front. We have exchanged ideas about the similarities and differences in our individual programs and are working together to simplify the access of interested artists to information about what we offer, as well as how to find better ways of organizing together to optimize the visiting artist’s stay here.

Leipzig is located in Saxony, Germany. It is a very old city, offering beautiful architecture and old streets, and is based in a strong traditional culture of art, book printing and music. In addition, it has played major roles in German history. In the context of contemporary art, it has recently once-again become world-renowned.

With a population of about 500,000 residents, Leipzig is a place that is ever changing and growing and has become an important meeting point from artists from all over the world. Its low costs of living offers a lot of freedom, space for creation, and has a welcoming small-town energy with lots of local color giving artists from abroad an almost immediate home away from home.

This web site is the first undertaking of United Residencies, to optimize the artist in transit’s access to information and networking between other artists involved in our programs. Here you will find full information about us and other information, which will help you better assimilate once you arrive.

The five artist residencies: Blumen, Fugitiv, Halle 14, L.I.A. and the PILOTENKUECHE all offer very unique formats. We appreciate your interest and are happy to provide you here with some basic information. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
