LaRete Art Projects was founded in 2004 by Julia Draganovic and Claudia Löffelholz as a follow-up to a project launched by Julia Draganovic in Germany in 1999: the Kulturbüro LaRete in Weimar, an informal network of freelance professionals dedicated to the arts - music, theatre, literature as well as visual arts. Kulturbüro LaRete has conceived and realized countless projects including the cultural program of the Europäische Sommerakademie Weimar (commissioned by the Bauhaus Universität Weimar), European Studio Program (of the ACC Galerie and the municipality of Weimar), series of contemporary art shows with the title Coniugazioni (in collaboration with the Province of Modena, Thüringer Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kultur, DIGIT Deutsch-Italienische Gesellschaft in Thüringen and Kuratorium Schloss Ettersburg), the Notti Italiani (in collaboration with DIGIT Deutsch-Italienische Gesellschaft in Thüringen and the Klassikstiftung Weimar), the Klezmer Wochen Weimar (in collaboration with Kuratorium Schloss Ettersburg) and Yiddish Summer Weimar.
