The modern building by the New York architect Richard Meier, which is situated right at the heart of Ulm, has been home to experimental and extraordinary projects for more than 25 years. This interaction of architectural styles right next to the late Gothic Minster of Ulm creates an atmosphere that seems equally committed to tradition and the future. These programmes that are either an own production or a cooperation focus on contemporary art, photography, architectural or environmental topics and so called Outsider Art. Contemporary dance and music are also an essential part. There is also a small permanent exhibition about the history of this place in the basement of the building.
