Project Space

TOP project space offers cultural events to local and translocal communities. It is inhabited and run by a transdisciplinary group of international artists, designers, architects, filmmakers, writers, scientists, activists and a cook. The space and its infrastructure, containing a biolab, a shared workspace, a kitchen and an event space, is used collaboratively by its community and is made accessible through events organised by its members and guests.

Founded in 2015 as a collaboration with Schillerpalais e. V. and upgraded in 2017, TOP is a project space for curiosity, creativity, education and transdisciplinary research. It serves as a platform for science, technology and art. People have access to DIY workshops, academic discussions, art exhibitions and screenings, and they can develop their own projects.
