Monumenta – Intelligence of Many
Germany’s largest temporary gallery space was created on the site of the historically protected Pittlerwerke in the north of Leipzig in summer 2018. The mighty factory halls once housed one of the largest machine tool manufacturers of the 20th century. Since reunification, however, the site has lain derelict, offering endless possibilities for design and use.
This is how the idea of Monumenta came into being. An interim use project that made architecture its own. The vision of uniting street and contemporary art, music, performance and everything that is an expression of human creativity was realised in a comprehensive work of art. This work could only be created through the involvement of many different actors, the Intelligence of Many.
