Leipzig. “Der neue Anfang” (The New Beginning) is an exhibition of the first results of Meissen's art campus project, which aims to revive the spirit of the 1920s and 30s when the company worked with leading artists, something that the Nazis put a stop to.

In 2010 the management of the state-owned porcelain manufacturing company first invited international artists take part in the project. Its chief executive said that he wants to make Meissen a “Mecca for contemporary art”.

Held at the Baumwollspinnerei Leipzig, an historic woollen mill, which now provides studio space for the likes of Neo Rauch and Michael Striegel as well as gallery space for Eigen + Art, the show includes work by over 20 international artists in total. Artists are making unique items, as well as limited editions of up to 25. Some of the latter are for sale.
