At the centre of the hall is a special video system, with 52 monitors, which can be seen from every seat.
Together with seats on the steps (about 60), a further 50 seats, 1 speakers' table and 1 reception table can be brought into the hall.

Offering a broad range of cultural solutions, and the perfect place for a whole variety of initiatives, it is open to external joint ventures but at the same time has a distinct artistic identity of its own. Its programme focuses on the contemporary world, with a wide range of promotional exhibitions and events.
