Soft Power Palace was a festival about independent art institutions in Europe that took place in Stuttgart in late 2018. It was initialized by Akademie Schloss Solitude together with the other partners of the Kunstgebäude network (Schauspiel Stuttgart, Merz Akademie, Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart, Theater Rampe, Württembergischer Kunstverein and ifa Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen).

Soft Power Palace’s aim was to establish a cultural exchange program that had never existed before. For eleven days, five artistic initiatives from five European cities were engaged in a public discourse on perspectives for cross-European cultural exchange. The work took place in open studios, which invited the participants to enter into conversation with each other. Each day ended with an event on the Open Stage.
