The Internationale Werkstattwochen Lüben have been established in 1991 after the German reunification in order to promote understanding and appreciation between the people from east and west. This has been developed over the years into a more general exchange of opinions, experiences and understanding of the participants. The Internationale Werkstattwochen Lüben are organized every second year by Kulturverein Wittingen and Stadt Wittingen. Please find the concept-file in the download area.
In the summer of 1991 fourteen artists from four different nations lived and worked together in the small village of Lüben, some seven kilometers north from Wittingen, and aproximately 500 meters off the former inner German border. In the last twenty years some ninety artists from twenty-three nations have participated in the workshops.
In 2017 the 14th Internationale Werkstattwoche took place from 21 th to 31th of July. 21 Artists from from all over the world lived and worked together, hosted by the Lüben population. The resulting artwork will be shown in several exhibtions, you’ll find the catalogue in the download area.
