Infomation about this exhibition

The Schloss Augustusburg near Chemnitz has been the venue for the world premiere of the unique special exhibition “MANGAMANIA – Big eyes guaranteed!” since April 2017. Due to the great number of visitors and the continuing interest in the interactive  exhibition, this will continue until the 28th of October 2018.

So far, the wide range of special exhibitions has been very well received with many fully booked workshops and guided tours and will therefore be offered in extended form. Creative people of all ages are looking forward to the Summer Academy from the 16th to the 20th of July 2018 as well as the Autumn Academy from the 15th to the 21th of October 2018. In addition to the hitherto very popular and always booked-out MANGA drawing workshops, various cosplay workshops are also planned.
