avedition, Managing Director
"The aed offers a unique, interdisciplinary network that makes other major cities envy us."
"Whether it is Berlin, Cologne or Munich - no other metropolis has a similar platform like the aed which brings together creative individuals from different disciplines. That is exactly where its strength lies: Connecting people and skills. This gives rise to new ideas, synergies and collaborations that we urgently need in this age of transformation.”
