Who we are

The Friends of the Leipzig Museum for Contemporary Art was founded on 10th November 1990. At first, without its own premises, the organisation held exhibitions in the underground hall of the Alte Messe, in the Monument to the Battle of the Nations, and at other diverse locations around Leipzig. Since the opening of the GfZK-Villa by the Johannapark in 1998 the Friends of the GfZK have supported acquisitions of art, exhibitions, publications, art prizes and curatorial projects. The members meet regularly by exhibition openings, by studio visits and on trips for the Friends of the GfZK.
