Art experts know Lucas Cranach the Elder as one of the most productive painters of the Renaissance. However, the fact that he was a real multi-entrepreneur is hidden from many. The jack-of-all-trades Lucas Cranach was also a pharmacist, mayor (in Lutherstadt Wittenberg), publisher, paint manufacturer and paper merchant. Through his involvement, information and far-reaching ideas (like that of the Reformation) were able to reach many people. In the course of digitalization, this development has given rise to entirely new protagonists such as Elon Musk, Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg - with Lucas Cranach, they share the desire to take the reins of action into their own hands, to shape things.
Based on advanced division of labor and prefabricated templates, countless paintings were created in his Cranach workshop. The Cranach workshop was thus an early model for the co-working and maker spaces that will facilitate a modern form of study at LCC.
Lucas Cranach was a real maker, and is therefore the perfect namesake for the Lucas Cranach Campus: He not only thought things through, but also tackled, networked, implemented and designed.
A lot has already happened since the first idea of "Kronach as a university location" until today. It's been a long road that has been followed with a clear plan from the very beginning. Take a look at the path LCC has already traveled and what is still to come in the coming years.
Companies can get involved in a variety of ways: Through lectures in courses, projects with students, joint research projects, donations, sponsoring events, company tours....
