Spring house

Spring house

Description 

 

The art project Springhouse is an anual residency, exhibition and festival taking place in Desden since 2011. Artists are invited into a private home in order to transform the house into a temporary space for the arts. Artists of all branches (painting, sculpture, performing arts, music) have the chance to relate to an intimate space and to explore the interchange between the arts and daily life by means of their works. Thereby they turn the house into a lab for work processes, into a stage and a show room for contemporary art.

By relating to the private rooms the artists blur the boundaries between art object and simple household items. Such the artists in residence and their visitors are exposed to the tension between private and public spheres gaining new insights into the private world of the inhabitants.

Location 

Both houses are located in Radeberger Vorstadt. Not until the middle of the 19th century a noteworthy settlement of this eastern part of the Dresden-Neustadt could be stated.

After 1860 began the construction of magnificent mansions in the area around Radeberger Straße. It became living quarters of prussian officers and military brass giving it the name "Preußisches Viertel".

Due to its peripheric position the territory remained mostly unharmed by the british air raid in World War II.
