June 24 until July 4, 2010
In summer 2010, the 'Kunstverein
Leipzig' invited six artists to examine
the Kolonnadenviertel in the center of
Leipzig with regard to its architecture
and its history.

The title of the art project "Platte
Schraube, Fuge" (tile, board, screw)
alluded to the way of building and living
in the former GDR, pointed at the same
time to the current urbanistic discour-
se, wherein Leipzig primarily deals with
the continuous gentrification and the
social development of the urban quar-

Within this context, the UTOPIAN INSTI-
TUTE temporarily settled during the
festival in the quarter's everyday life
as an "informative interspace" with
library and bureau.
