The Z-Bau - House for Contemporary Culture is open to all people who reject any form of discrimination. Due to this open orientation, people with different life plans, expectations, wishes, ideas and goals come together. Therefore, it is also a living space and thus a place for conviviality, discussion, networking and interdisciplinary understanding.

The Z-Bau is municipally funded, but is politically independent. Beyond its location, we regard the Z-Bau and its actors as an attentive and critically constructive voice of cultural politics. A reflected awareness is brought to bear on the tension between freedom and economy. In the negotiation of these two aspects, which is to be continuously updated, the non-profit, common good-oriented basic orientation applies.
