In its fifth edition, springhouse 2017 will take place in HELLERAU - European Center for the Arts Dresden. Originally built in 1911 as a school of Rhythmics, following an eventful history – in the 1930s it served as a military camp; later the Soviet army used it as their barracks – in the 1990s the site was brought back to life through art.

HELLERAU has since become one of the most important interdisciplinary centres for contemporary arts in Germany and Europe. It is home to contemporary dance, musical theatre, contemporary classical music, theatre, performance art, the fine arts and new media, as well as a place for reflection on art and culture. Along with its partner organisations on site, the European Centre for the Arts has been working on creating an 'arts workspace' in HELLERAU.
