Artist house Lauenburg

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Künstlerhaus Lauenburg is an international scholarship holder of the State of Schleswig-Holstein for fine arts , literature and composition in the city of Lauenburg / Elbe . Since it was founded in 1986, over 120 scholarships have been awarded in the three fields of visual arts (since 1986), literature (since 1987) and composition (since 2010).


The Künstlerhaus goes back to the initiative of the former mayor of Lauenburg, Hauke ​​Matthießen, who recognized in the 1980s that the historic Lauenburg old town is a suitable place to live and work for artists. In 1986, at his instigation, the city acquired a historic building directly on the Elbe and awarded one-year grants for artists. At the end of the 1990s the scholarship period was shortened and from 2003 the city began to consider selling the house, which would have meant the end of the project.

In 2005, under the direction of Ulrike Mechau-Krasemann, the supporting association Künstlerhaus Lauenburg / Elbe eV was formed , which bought the building in 2009 and has been operating the Künstlerhaus ever since. The house is financed in a variety of ways: the state pays the four grants, the district assumes part of the operating costs and the city of Lauenburg pays an annual subsidy. The scholarship for composition is financed by the Lionsclub Herzogtum Lauenburg.


The house is housed in a historically significant building complex at Elbstraße 54, which was built around 1850. It was placed under monument protection in 1982. It shows typical features of the old shipping town of Lauenburg. The house served, among other things, as a pub ( Schreyersches Gasthaus ), was used by the adult education center for courses, served as a leisure center for Italian guest workers and was finally converted into a residential building before it received its current public function. Today there are four spacious artist apartments and studios, as well as a lounge and a gallery, on an area of ​​over 600 m².

The building has several branches. One is in the old harbor master's office at Lauenburg harbor. This is where the music grant recipients are housed. For the 25th anniversary of the Künstlerhaus in October 2011, the Lauenburg City Gallery was opened in Hagenström at Elbstraße 28 . The works of the scholarship holders can be exhibited, read and heard in this collection. Since 2011, the Künstlerhaus has also had a mini-gallery in the historic Brücken-Waage at the harbor, in which pictures are shown that were created in the children's studio of the Künstlerhaus.
