Gastronomy: The bar in our foyer is open. A small selection of food will be available.

Artists from all fields and disciplines are regularly invited to present their current projects within the framework of the ›ATELIER – Experimental platform for the arts‹ series at PACT. Through an open call, projects in various stages of development as well as finished works are selected for each ATELIER edition and presented as independent entities in surprising combinations, without specific thematic or genre requirements. This results in a diverse program featuring performance, visual arts, music, video, and new media, which can be experienced until late at night throughout the former colliery building. The current edition, ›ATELIER No. 69‹, presents artistic contributions that oscillate between open processes and concrete proposals, aiming to create spaces for speculation and imagination.
