Throughout the summer and continuing until March 2017, CCA will be facilitating a series of talks, screenings and events surrounding the idea of The City.

Acting as primers for an upcoming exhibition in April 2017, this programme will explore how people mobilise themselves within the constraint of – and in response to – the city. Focusing on the catalytic potential of the city, we’ll examine what can emerge from different approaches to the civic and urban space, looking at how space is controlled through different forms. Exploring modes of civil obedience and self-organisation, we’ll also discuss how subcultures emerge from the city, how space becomes gentrified, and radical modes of architecture and planning.

Alongside local stories, partnership events, reading groups and talks, we’ll screen films surrounding the occupation of structures like Torre David, Caracas’ famous unfinished skyscraper and discuss political engineers such as Bogota’s former mayor Antanas Mockus, and his use of artistic strategies to effect societal change.The programme includes activist and artist film exploring self-organisation in the city, a film programme focusing on queer civic subculture in January, and dystopian cult classics to be screening over the winter – all free and open to everyone.
