The Altana Gallery in the Görges building is the exhibition gallery of the Dresden University of Applied Sciences. The building was built in 1905 in Neo-Renaissance style with a two-story atrium and a red clinker facade. The architect was Karl Weißbach, who was also an university teacher. The building shows historical installations and exhibits on the development of electrical engineering and it is directly integrated into the teaching process.
The gallery is a place to experience contemporary art in the context of research and society. A wide variety of artistic and scientific positions meet here with an interested audience to discuss the future, the past and our present.
The concept of the exhibition house of the Technical University Dresden is unique in Germany: Art, technology and science meet at an excellence university.
