About the Centre for Aesthetics


Since 2003, the Centre for Aesthetics (ZfĄ) has provided an institutional framework for a wide range of artistic and cultural activities at Bielefeld University. We regularly organise concerts, exhibitions and readings. Teaching staff, students and staff in administration and service are actively involved in our major cultural events "Nacht der Klänge" and "art/science-Festival". We are active in the fields of literature, visual arts, film and media, building culture and art/science.

The Centre for Aesthetics is also the central contact address for committed theatre groups and supports culturally ambitious projects in press and public relations work. Anyone who would like to be active themselves and realise their own project is welcome to contact us at any time so that we can consider together how the ZfĄ can provide support!
