The multi-location research project KultMIX focusses on the four areas of Sindelfingen, the town and county of Osnabrück, Dresden, and Hamburg. These are four cities and regions of varying size and geographical location that, over time, have developed their own distinct economic, social and cultural dynamics. Cultural institutions always also have a local context and effect. Hence, both the framework, as well as productions and narratives of the cultural institutions and actors examined by the project, show significant variety.
