As a non-profit art centre, HALLE 14 is a place for the presentation of contemporary art as well as a space for reflection and communication. It has been operating since 2002 in a listed historic industrial building on the grounds of the Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei (Cotton Spinning Mill).
Taking advantage of the »luxury of emptiness« in the generous halls of this late 19th century industrial building, a group of art enthusiasts has over time created unique spaces for the presentation and production of art. Today, a multi-functional visitor centre with library offers 600 m² for learning, reading and lingering. A 2,400 m² exhibition hall is available as a presentation space for contemporary art. There are also a workspace for art education, 16 studios for international and local artists and seven workshops. This careful development was awarded the Hieronymus Lotter Prize for Historic Preservation in 2012 and received an honourable mention from the Saxon State Prize for Architecture in 2015.
The Cotton Spinning Mill has developed into a dense artistic sociotope with over a dozen galleries and project spaces, 130 artist studios, numerous other creative offices, a cinema, a café and more. Combined with the countless off-spaces in the surrounding neighbourhood, they create an enriching enviroment.
