The Denkraum Improvisation (thinking space improvisation) is our work area ‘Theory & Research’ led by Mathias Maschat. In the Denkraum we invite musicians and theorists to our various discussion series: Sound & Lecture, imp[or]trait, key_concepts and leeways. Past discussions can be found in the Denkraum archive and on our YouTube channel. Once a year we organize a symposium, most recently Meaning and Presence in Improvisation in August 2021, Improvisation as a Space of Experience in January 2022 and Improvisation and Ethics in January 2023. The Improvisation Reading Circle invites you to read and discuss texts about improvisation together. We also collect literature and other media about improvisation in our specialist library for improvisation.

All upcoming events can be found below.
