Gallery of Contemporary Art

The building itself is fascinating: Known since 1785 as the Hentschel-Mühle, it was acquired in 1879 by Eduard Leonhardi, a student of Ludwig Richter, converted into a studio for young artists, and intricately painted by Charles Palmié. From 1885 until the early 1960s, Leonhardi’s works were exhibited here. Since 1963, the museum has served as an exhibition space for various artists’ groups, mostly for young artists. In the 1970s and 1980s, significant chapters of progressive art history were created here with diverse and bold exhibitions. Today, the municipal gallery mainly presents changing exhibitions of contemporary art from Saxony, as well as a permanent exhibition of Eduard Leonhardi’s paintings.
