Reflective Architecture – Virtual exhibition

For the current installment of the Reflective Architecture project, artists Elsa Grégoire, Margret Hoppe and Sebastian Stumpf prepared works in relation with the Bowlingtreff, Leipzig’s former municipal bowling alley. A serial project initiated by Margret Hoppe, Reflective Architecture was conceived with the aim of developing works in different media with reference to buildings of various kinds. Opened to the public in 1987, the former recreational facility in Leipzig, which grew out of local civic action, largely occupies the underground spaces of a former electrical converter station on Wilhelm-Leuschner-Platz.
Kept in use until 1997, the Bowlingtreff is set to become the new location for the Leipzig Natural History Museum. The works on view on the exhibition website were created between February and May 2022 and show the place in an intermediate state of lived history, neglect and impending conversion.  Click here to go to the website.
 
The project was supported by the program "Neustart Kultur" by the Federal Republic of Germany.
