Das Schaudepot


What is the Schaudepot?

A unique model institution has been created in a former craft workshop in the southern part of Stuttgart: the most unique exhibition and performing arts venue in the city!

Performances in small formats are held here. On site or online. Appointments can be made individually. Performance workshops with children, young people and adults are organised. Time, workstations, books, tools and technology are shared. As a research facility, archive, material storage and event venue, the Schaudepot is the first of its kind for the performing arts.
