Initiation of interdisciplinary networks
The spatial centre of PLATFORM is located on a 2000 sqm floor of a former industrial building in the south of Munich, 12 minutes by underground from Marienplatz. The Entreé is a hall for presentations, workshops and events. 23 bright studios are rented to artists and designers. In the PLATFORM office, a permanent team and five volunteers develop programs and publications on current interdisciplinary topics and cultural fields of work.
The aim of PLATFORM is to provide space for innovative creative production, to qualify for future cultural fields of work and to contribute to more attention and appreciation of artistic work - because it courageously crosses borders, enables a different view of the world and broadens thinking.
