As ZK/U was started by artist collective KUNSTrePUBLIK, the center remains innovative in its work and approach towards space. However, while in the beginning, the work of the center was more art oriented, nowadays, ZK/U is more inclined to interpreted the art in the center of  art as the tool for social transformations. As the result, the place proposes a unique merge of the conceptual framing of space and novelty of methods with socially focused goals.  Thus, ZK/U is an ideal choice to discover both for those who interested in art and city transforming processes and those, who are looking for the nice green place to spend an evening listening to music or watching movies.
