You are an artist? And you are looking for an opportunity to make your project come to life in a solo show? Then we are looking forward to your application at Helmut!

Helmut is a young non-profit association located in Leipzig, Germany, dedicated to empower cultural and community oriented events. Besides other events, for many years we have been organizing and hosting a year-round art exhibition program in the space. All shows are solo shows (or from collectives), change monthly and can be seen for 2-3 weeks. The vernissage and finissage always take place on Fridays. Your exhibition will be promoted on our website and our social media channels with your own written texts. During the span of the exhibition other non-related events, such as live music,readings, dinners or movie screenings take place in the Helmut space.

For the next round of our exhibition program (September 2022- June 2023) in our 35 sq meter space, we will be accepting applications until the 15th of March 2022. All mediums and art-forms are welcome and the exhibitions are not theme-bound.

Please note that Helmut is a young non-profit association and we therefore unfortunately have NO FUNDING for production, installation or transport and do not have sound systems or projectors available. We act non profit oriented and all work on a voluntary base to make the events happen. But we are happy to assist you in finding a place to stay or help with your funding-application. We are certain to find a good solution together!.
