Welcome to The Lahr von Leitis Academy & Archive

The Lahr von Leitis Academy & Archive was established to familiarize the young generation with the treasures of exiled art, in order to help them create a meaningful future that incorporates the lessons learned from history. Its goal is to use learning and the transfer of knowledge as powerful tools to fight against ignorance, discrimination, and hatred. ( more)
The Lahr von Leitis Academy & Archive was founded by Gregorij H. von Leitis and Michael Lahr in 1995. It wants to offer an environment where everyone can develop their creative potential, experience and celebrate human diversity. To this end we regularly offer lectures, workshops, seminars, and master classes. ( more)
