Büchsenhausen pursues a wide range of cooperations with institutions and initiatives outside the art world, the aim being to make people aware of artistic and socially critical ways of thinking both inside and outside the art context.

In this respect, since 2011, Büchsenhausen has been an active member of the association “Netzwerk Geschlechterforschung” (Network Gender Research), which has set itself the task of establishing the place of gender research in civil society.

Since 2012, within the framework of the “Arbeitskreis Globales Lernen Innsbruck” (Working Group Global Learning Innsbruck), which is coordinated by “Südwind Tirol,” events have been taking place on the initiative of the Künstler:innenhaus Büchsenhausen to present critical observations of our (post)-colonial heritage and discuss them from an artistic perspective.

In addition, regular cooperation with the Institute of Languages and Literatures, Department of Comparative Literature, and joint projects with scholars active in the frame of the Research Area “Cultural Encounters – Cultural Conflicts” represent a vital link to students and scholars at the University of Innsbruck.
