The Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, a foundation based in Leipzig, is an exhibition space for contemporary art and a museum for art post-1945. GfZK promotes and imparts international artistic positions on its own premises and in public spaces, it initiates cooperations and carries out research-based artistic projects. The fine art collections mirror the interest in the natural integration of diverse forms of expression, of different artistic positions and generations. Since the inception of GfZK, addressing local themes in connection with global developments is a focus. The possibility of participation and the social agency of art are of particular importance. In this sense, the work of the GfZK focuses less on defining a canon of values than on exploring the potentials of artistic and curatorial work and of art mediation. The GfZK has gradually established itself internationally as a place where the reciprocal relationship between art and architecture and between art and design is addressed and the relationship between presentation, the construction of meaning and the ascription of value is questioned.
