ZAK Center for Contemporary Art – Gallery, upper floor


The exhibition “Meisterstück! Hauptwerke aus der Kunstsammlung der Sparkasse Leipzig”, draws the fascinating paths of Leipzig art from the founding generation of the “Leipzig School” to the influential teacher figures of the “New Leipzig School” to the present day. The focus is on figurative painting, represented by artists such as Bernhard Heisig, Wolfgang Mattheuer, Arno Rink and Neo Rauch. In addition, there are central positions in graphic art as well as important works by photo-artists such as Astrid Klein, Florian Ebner, Anett Stuth and Ricarda Roggan.
