Campaign: A new, temporary self-study facility and library has opened at Marburger Str.3, aimed at creating space for research, exchange and reflection.

The publications focus on design, art, cultural studies, photography, music and architecture.

Campaign: Queer Analog Darkroom, a self-organised photography skill-sharing community, are currently fundraising with the hope of reopen their physical location. Since the great loss of the Oyoun culture centre, QAD have been without a permanent hope.
