Halle Neustadt was one of the first attempts from East Germany on planning a new city from scratch. They wanted to create a utopic place with equal conditions for everyone. To make the site more vibrant and colourful, artworks were spread all around the area, and we are here to show you these socialist murals of Halle Neustadt.
The Löffelfamilie is how this neon sign has been known to everyone in Leipzig since it was first lightened up in 1973. The non-official name can be translated as the Spoon Family. It is the only neon sign from East Germany that we ever saw, still standing in public like this.
