Festival for contemporary music in Halle & Leipzig

Exhibition period
05.10.2023 - 15.10.2023

IMPULS is a platform for diverse contemporary positions, collaborative artistic practices and new installative, performative and discursive formats. This year's festival motto is NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT and addresses the urgency of responding to the crises and pressing issues of our time. In particular, the focus is on artistic positions and practices that work beyond the boundaries of their own discipline and also explicitly address social issues such as care, the ecological crisis, identity and decolonization in their work and research. In this context, a wide variety of art, sound installations and music performances will take place, framed by workshops and films for visitors and the curious.

The idea of the PianoXpress is to make travelling by train what it used to be. A pleasant, eventful time. During the day, travelling in nice company or spending time undisturbed with a good book or one's laptop. Travelling comfortably and safely at night and with the highest standards of hygiene. Travelling as "quality time". Time that can be put to good use so that you arrive at your destination relaxed and in a good mood.

The exhibition shows two interpretations of this theme.

Piero Lissoni, Milano, Europe's leading furniture and interior designer as well as architect for houses and ships, has dealt with the subject of travelling in great detail and has based his design on a sound historical basis.

Hadi Theherani, who is well known for his elegant office buildings and villas, approaches the subject from the futuristic side.

Both are united by their focus on travelling as a pleasant experience. We very much hope that the railway companies and the governments of Europe will recognise the potential of the QUALITY factor and not just focus on QUANTITY, i.e. the number of travellers in a train. As an historical example we show the Settebello train from Italy. The Settebello connected Milano with Rome over more than theee decades. The comfort and design quality were exceptional. A panoramic lounge at the head of the multiple unit provided fantastic views from the driver's perspective.

Our last exhibitions


Halle 9 has become established as an exhibition for art rooted in life since its foundation in 2016.

The similarity to the architecture of Oscar Niemeyer and the Kirow and HeiterBlick products promotes exhibitions for architecture and design as well as art with a technical / perceptual­­­psychological impact.
