© IfM The Centre for Cultural Research (ZfKf) works on an interdisciplinary basis in empirically supported research, documentation and consultation in the practical and policy-making fields of culture, education, and media. In the past decade, the ZfKf's work was primarily focused on studies on cultural education. Studies on the culture industry, the Handbuch der Kulturpreise (i.e. handbook of cultural awards) and gender studies were additional focal areas.

The ZfKf cooperates with numerous research and cultural institutions in Germany and internationally. Assignments and cooperative projects take the centre's staff members to all regions of Europe as well as to North and South America, Africa, and Asia.
