A meeting about a book of sources that centres African archives

Institutional Performance Festival
Event, in English, online, 18 October, 3pm

Each day this week, one of our internal meetings is open to the public as part of the second CCA Institutional Performance Festival. This is an opportunity to hear how the institution speaks in private, to encounter the people behind the projects, and to get a sense of the operation of an international research centre for architecture. No special programming is planned: these will be real meetings, with everything that entails.

The Institutional Performance Festival was created at the How to: disturb the public workshop in 2019. It was imagined as a physical event that would welcome you into the private spaces of the building—and today, with most of our meetings online, we can welcome even more people around a virtual table.

In Part One, members of the Publications and Research team will meet with Huda Tayob and Dele Adeyemo, two of the researchers participating in the Centring Africa project, to discuss the archival material they have selected for a source book that expands and dismantles existing archives of African architecture.

Click here to register. Before and after the meeting, there will be a conversation with the CCA Public team and opportunities to ask questions.
