TEH Conference 95 in Leipzig

TEH Conference 95 will take place in Leipzig, Germany, between 8-11 June 2023 and will be hosted by Moritzbastei in collaboration with HALLE14 – Centre for Contemporary Art



How do art and cultural work respond to the ongoing transformation processes in Europe and the world? Migration, digitalisation, climate change, war and crisis of resources are challenging everyone of us. How do we deal with our own history, the heritage of abandoned buildings and how do we transform our cultural traditions into the future without loosing our roots and values?

The theme of the conference gives space to reflect, to exchange knowledge and experience and to question our work and behaviour. And we will of course celebrate the 40th anniversary of the most beautiful cultural network in Europe – TRANS EUROPE HALLES!

Industrial heritage
Many of our cultural centres are located in former industrial buildings. How do we deal with the history of these places? What is worth keeping present in the public memory? Do you developed your own or creative ways to deal with it?

Digitalisation in culture
Ditigalisation is one of the biggest challenges of the near future? What opportunities do we see for culture and what threats are there? How do we involve young people in our projects whose approach to information and culture is shaped by digital media?

We don’t need to say much about this – how can our cultural centres and our work help to tackle the climate crisis? What ideas and successful examples are there?

Global crises are leading to ever greater migration movements. Europe is becoming a continent of immigration. Our societies are becoming more and more diverse in every conceivable way. How do we deal with these changes, what influence does this have on our daily work?

And of course: 40 years of Trans Europe Halles!
Many of our cultural centres are as old as Trans Europe Halles or only slightly younger. What experiences can we pass on within the network to the new and young centres?
