Short facts

The Gallery for Contemporary Art is one of the first places fans of contemporary art visit. This is where different artistic positions meet.

The Foundation Gallery for Contemporary Art Leipzig (GfZK for short) is an exhibition house for contemporary art, which mainly references the period after 1945.


Since its opening in 1998, the Contemporary Art Gallery has developed into one of the leading institutions of contemporary art in the new German states and throughout Europe. The gallery offers you several options:


  • Visiting important exhibitions, sometimes also on controversial questions of contemporary art
  • Discussions with artists and curators in the café or garden
  • Readings of publications on contemporary art at the library 
  • Participate in one of the innovative educational programmes of the "GfZK FÜR DICH" -

The café, garden and shop are conceived and designed by artists – like the new Hotel Paris Syndrom or Café bau bau.


The Contemporary Art Gallery also offers many programmes for kindergartens and school classes, as well as special holiday programmes.
