The main conference venue is Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar (Keplerstraße 3-5, 66117 Saarbruecken, Germany).

The Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar (HBKsaar) is the Saarland’s only university of art and design. It was founded in 1989 and emerged from the initial “Staatliche Schule für Kunst” founded 1924 which changed to a “Schule für Kunst und Handwerk” in 1964, both with a strong tradition of arts and crafts. From 1971 to 1989 the school join together with the current University of Applied sciences. Since 1989 HBKsaar has developed into one of the most important creative training centres in the greater region of Saarland-Western Palatinate-Alsace-Lorraine-Luxembourg-Wallonia. HBKsaar is a public institution with about 500 students and offers a challenging and fulfilling education in subjects that are current and relevant to the artistic and creative fields.

The lgm-opening venue is the historical building of the former French embassy (Hohenzollernstrasse 60, 66117 Saarbruecken, Germany). A beautiful building offering a variety of large, medium, and small spaces and surrounded by a garden, it is one of the city’s hidden secrets since it is currently awaiting reconstruction and only open for temporary uses. It is also a landmark building reflecting the regions complex Franco-German history.

We are in the process of working with additional locations across the city of Saarbruecken to host side events.
