The Transformation of Spinnerei: from Industrial Site to Art Centre

The Spinnerei in Leipzig, Germany, was once a cotton mill in the 19th and 20th century. Following its closure in the 1990s, the site was abandoned for many years. Today, the Spinnerei has been transformed into a vibrant centre for contemporary art and creative industries. Visitors find dozens of galleries, studios, workshops, and the KINO, an artist-led cinema. In this article, we explore the history of the Spinnerei, its transformation into a creative hub, and the formation of its artist community.
