Institut für Kulturelle Teilhabeforschung
The IKTf (Institute for Research on Cultural Participation) is concerned with the question of how cultural institutions, cultural administrations and cultural policy can develop data-based strategies for cultural participation. To research this issue, the Institute conducts studies on visitors and non-visitors at cultural offerings, such as population surveys. It is also responsible for the scientific quality assurance of the Berlin-based visitor research system KulMon (KulturMonitoring). Further, the Institute is studying conditions that favor participation in cultural offerings. In one example of its research methods, it closely follows model projects of cultural institutions for cultural participation and analyzes their organization/personnel, program and audience. In addition, the IKTf also surveys cultural administrations on their strategies for promoting cultural participation.
