The Dampfzentrale Bern and its associated artists view themselves as partners who, thanks to their dedication, create added value for one another. For the associated artist, this means:
- Prioritised use of our infrastructure and production facilities
- A guest performance at the Dampfzentrale Bern
- Curating a weekend at the Dampfzentrale Bern
In return, associated artists promote the interests of the Dampfzentrale Bern.
Both sides see themselves as partners and serve as ambassadors: the Dampfzentrale promotes artists among curators, at conferences, and within its own networks, whereas the artist promotes the Dampfzentrale among other artists.
Since 2015/16, the visual artist Zimoun and choreograph Michael Wälti are Associated Artists of the Dampfzentrale Bern.
