Welcome to our Denkraum Improvisation, which translates as thinking space improvisation! The Denkraum is our department ‘Theory & Research’, which Reinhard Gagel established since 2012. Mathias Maschat took over the responsibility of this work area in March 2020.
Since then, his focus has been on the development of new conversation formats – imp[or]trait, key_concepts and leeways – to which he invites musicians and theorists; Past conversations can be found in the Denkraum Archive and on our YouTube channel. In addition, he works with Meaning and Presence in Improvisation as well as Space of Experience / Improvisation on the continuation of the symposia held in the exploratorium. The series of lecture concerts Sound & Lecture and the Reading Circle Improvisation are also being continued. Last but not least, the specialist library for improvisation is being further expanded.
All upcoming events can be found below.
