Leipzig is internationally renowned for its creative scene and is home to many artists. In the past years a bustling startup scene has also developed. However, both scenes seemingly have very few points of contact. But why? Don’t both artists & founders create new things out of nothing and, while doing so, risk a lot? Don’t both need inspiration to develop new ideas? What motivates them to then actually follow through with them – either by going to the studio or the trade office? And aren’t both involuntarily subject to market trends and have to find ways of financing their endeavors?

We want to discuss these questions together with one artist and entrepreneur in the event series „stARTup“. The kick-off event with Ryan Mosley (british painter) and Jan Winklemann (serial entrepreneur amongst others of ArtEngine.io) received strong interest. This time we will focus on photography and discuss on Tuesday, the 24th of October at 6pm in the SpinLab with Maix Mayer, photographer, media and concept artist and Florian Meissner, co-founder and CEO EyeEm. Moderation: Franziska Jaster, Art Director Gallery EIGEN + ART.

Theater at WERKSCHAU hall 12

George Orwell’s 1984
 
Adapted and Directed by Laura Shann
 
1984 is a dystopian novel published in 1949 by English author George Orwell. The novel is set in the superstate Oceania ; a world of perpetual war. The omnipresent government surveillance, and public manipulation by a political regime controls and persecutes individualism and independent thinking.
The book has seen a resurgence in popularity recently, reaching numerous best seller lists. Due to the alarming similarities in today‘s world, 1984 stands as stark reminder of the possible outcomes of living in a totalitarian society.
This new stage adaption seeks to highlight the often named ‘predictive’ aspects of the story, whilst remaining loyal to the original plot.
