In collaboration with LIA (Leipzig International Art Programme) the Goethe-Institute offers artists from Southeast Asia a three-month residency at the Art and Culture Centre Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei. At the beginning of the 20th century the Baumwollspinnerei (cotton mill) was the site of Europe’s largest processing centre for cotton, today it houses the cultural centre for one of the most exciting places for the production and exhibition of contemporary art and culture in Europe.

Participants of the residency program

Yadanar Win

With an early interest in international exchange, driven by her university studies in English, she joined New Zero Art Space, a non-profit visual art organization established in Yangon, Myanmar in 2008, working there for many years as an organizer, participant, and art professional.

Her unique ability to seamlessly join her own body, to the document of her performance, and bring them together into an art object is reflective of her generation’s willingness to experiment with all mediums, and abandon the traditional painting and sculpture so common in the Myanmar art scene. Her performances are passionate and critical, often citing the plight of Myanmar’s peace process or personal struggles as a young, female artist.

Jadanar's intend is to develop two art projects exploring the thriving art scene in Leipzig. One project will include series of performances at specific locations where she could find connections through space, time, body and personal belongings. Another idea is to have conversations with people in the region to collect words which reflect the social political situation of Germany.
