WE ARE THE (MIDDLE)FINGER
TO THE FACE OF CULTURAL LETHARGY
In Leipzig, on the facility ground of the old Pittlerwerke, we will create the largest gallery space in Germany, where street and contemporary art, graffiti, installation, music, performance, and fine art are combined to form a total work of art, that celebrates the intelligence-of-many.
With artists of different disciplines, we will combine opposites and let differences crash.
On top: Food, live acts, and: ArtRaves in our Monumenta Club.
Wandelism-Style. We don’t fuckin care about labels or borders. We fuck (with) them. And celebrate the shit out of it.
The sheer size of the location in the former industrial site of Pittlerweke in Leipzig screams for the childish joy of losing yourself in a huge room. Skating through an art exhibition, screaming and waiting for the echo to come back to you. To be led by the artworks through an unknown territory and to discover art.
THE MONUMENTA IS NOT A GROUP EXHIBITION.
IT IS A PRESENTATION OF GREAT VISIONS OF MANY.
The curators Denis Leo Hegic and Jan Fiedler present an interdisciplinary program ranging from urban art, street art, contemporary art, graffiti to performance and theatre. Our intention is not to teach art, but to discover the monumental thought in you. And to celebrate the shit out of it.
