City of Chemnitz

The EU awards the title “European Capital of Culture” once a year to at least two cities of great cultural potential, with the intention of strengthening community and diversity in the EU. The bid book from the winning German city of Chemnitz captures the spirit of the application, which focuses on a typical Chemnitz DIY-mentality: It comes as a pragmatic clip-on folder intended to be a tinkerer’s notebook. Its inner workings are as exciting as Chemnitz at second glance.
