Artists' Conquest 2023

Once again this year, contemporary artists will conquer the historic Pillnitz Palace and park grounds in the joint exhibition series Artists' Conquest by the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden and the Staatliche Schlösser, Burgen und Gärten Sachsen gGmbH.

  • DATES 29/07/2023—31/10/2023
  • Opening Hours daily 10—17, Monday closed


With their large-scale works, the artists provide a new perspective on the unique cultural monument and the museum presentations. To complement the September exhibition Paper Alive! - Paper Art International of the International Association of Hand Papermakers and Paper Artists (IAPMA), works of art made of paper will be on display. The diverse positions range from the water-powered paper printing machine "Fortuna Wheel", which was created at the Design Campus Summer School under Future Farmers (USA, Belgium), to paper bead art by Sanaa Gateja (Uganda) and therapeutic group works by the Peace Paper Project (USA), which address war and crisis traumas by means of papermaking and collaborated with Ukrainian participants of kolibri e.V. for the exhibition in Dresden.
