Where friendly paths converge,
the world feels like home.
after Hermann Hesse
The association “dieKunstBauStelle” was founded in Landsberg am Lech in 2014. The goals of the non-profit association’s activities are the promotion of art and culture, cultural mediation, cultural education and projects of cultural youth work. To this end, the association initiates and organizes projects together with partners from and around Landsberg am Lech.
The current focus is on projects of the bildart, especially with new media, film and photography. For this purpose, a media workshop with computer workstations is to be set up.
The association finances its activities only from membership fees, donations and the members’ own contributions.
The projects are each made possible and supported by public funding.
The association has developed from an art project of the same name: theKunstBauStelle
