Special emphasis was for many years the promotion of innovative and future-oriented projects and institutions in the fields of music and media.
Presently Susanne Haist is the coordinator of the Stuttgart Futurelab. In dialogue with performing artists technological change in culture is discussed and innovative formats initiated. In 2017 the focus lies in particular with the development of visions for the future of music in the city of Stuttgart. The process thrives on the participation of local and international artists. The digitalisation of music, new ideas in the art of performance and education are all areas of importance.
