Conversations, from other perspectives

CCA c/o is a series of temporary initiatives that are locally anchored in different cities worldwide, a tool to reveal issues of general relevance that emerge from different contexts than our own, a strategy for defining new thematic explorations and adding new perspectives to ongoing conversations, and an experiment in transforming the CCA itself.

We are interested in different ideas and perspectives emerging from different cultures and places. But we have little interest in the physical infrastructure and subservient relationship of museum franchises or satellites. Today a global institution must be thought of as a network, not a building. Agile and informal, CCA c/o sets down where an interesting architectural discussion is taking place and where a sympathetic partner can offer a unique perspective. They can be independent curators, architects, journalists, photographers, and editors—or other interesting figures we find along the way—but we welcome them as part of the CCA. Sometimes we host them, other times they host us. Each iteration will be different, but here’s what we’ve done so far in Lisbon and Tokyo.

CCA c/o Tokyo

Over the course of 2018 and 2019, we are working with Kayoko Ota, an architectural curator and editor based in Tokyo and commissioner of the Japanese pavilion at the 2014 Venice Biennale, to develop research with and facilitate public engagement with our projects in Tokyo.

CCA c/o Lisboa

For our inagural program we partnered with Artéria, an architectural studio led by Ana Jara and Lucinda Correia, to develop a series of public programs in Lisbon that expanded upon on some of our lines of inquiry.
