The barrack is a student cultural and event centre and the home of the Department of Political Science and Sociology between Lake Aasee and the Institute for Political Science at Scharnhorststraße 100 in Münster. It is by no means just a new building in which students drink coffee.

Die Baracke ist ein studentisches Kultur- und Veranstaltungszentrum sowie die Heimat der Fachschaften Politikwissenschaft und Soziologie zwischen dem Aasee und dem Institut für Politikwissenschaft in der Scharnhorststraße 100 in Münster.

Die Baracke dient den VeranstalterInnen als offene Struktur zur Verwirklichung ihres Anliegens, den KünstlerInnen als Möglichkeit des Ausdrucks und stellt für die NutzerInnen eine Alternative zur durch-kommerzialisierten Kulturmaschinerie dar.
