The art project springhouse is an anual residency, exhibition and festival which takes place in Dresden for the second time. Artists are invited into a private home in order to transform the house into a temporary space for the arts.

Artists of all branches (painting, sculpture, performing arts, music) have the chance to relate to an intimate space and to explore the interchange between the arts and daily life by means of their works. Thereby they turn the house into a lab for work processes, into a stage and a show room for contemporary art.

By relating to the private rooms the artists blur the boundaries between art object and simple household items. Such the artists in residence and their visitors are exposed to the tension between private and public spheres gaining new insights into the private world of the inhabitants.

springhouse is a project initiated and curated by Anna Bründl and Sven Christian Schuch.
