A municipal gallery for contemporary art, the Kunsthaus Dresden endeavors to offer a broad public insight into the art world through changing exhibitions of contemporary art.
The exhibitions are conceptualized and carried out by a small team and address specific and typically current topics of contemporary art oriented towards an international spectrum. One of the main objectives of the Kunsthaus Dresden is to make artistic forms of expression and content more accessible to a broad public.
As part of its exhibition concept, the Kunsthaus Dresden develops individual projects as well as longer-term topic series. The series Geschichte / History and Notes from the Empire focus on memory processes as the subject of contemporary art and the relationship between art and history. The series wire/less reflects current transitions in our thinking caused by the possibilities afforded by digital media technology, while also illuminating the artistic reflection of our cultural and natural resources based on our immediate material environment.
The Kunsthaus Dresdens changing offer boasts many concrete means of access for visitors to the diverse exhibitions. These exhibitions simultaneously provide impetus and establish connections and networking opportunities between Dresdens young cultural scene and the interested public and supraregional discourses and selected players in international contemporary art.
