Lepsien Art Foundation
Art opens up space for new experiences
As a counterbalance to our daily office life, DataLab offers its employees and visitors room for new and innovative perspectives. By integrating modern art into our office space, alternating artists are given the opportunity to exhibit their images. DataLab also financially supports the Lepsien Art Foundation.
The Lepsien Art Foundation´s aim is to create an open exchange between artists independent of their culture, nationality or gender and to facilitate the access to art for visitors.
“Passion requires commitment – this is Christian Lepsien´s core justification for promoting art via his foundation. For me, the following qualities are also decisive reasons for sponsoring the arts:
- Humility – because the sponsor does not speak, but rather lets the art speak
- Tolerance – because the sponsor might not like everything that artists create
- Patience – because art does not arrive on command
- Instinct and tolerance – the ability to recognize an artist’s potential and to promote their talents over a sustained period of time
“I strongly believe in the importance of sustaining art and culture for my environment and for posterity. “

Education is the key to success
“Die Chancenstiftung (The Chance Foundation) – educational sponsors for Germany” has been committed improving the educational possibilities of motivated children and young people from financially and socially deprived families since 2009. It provides a nationwide funding program that supports young people in their bid to improve their educational and social abilities and to better prepare them for entry into the professional world. For this, the Foundation awards tuition scholarships.
Thirteen children have been able to participate in funding programs and improve their potential thanks to our team´s contribution since 2016.
