Supporting Black-owned businesses helps provide much-needed stability to business owners that have been hard hit by the pandemic. And you’re laying a foundation to continue to support Black businesses long after the crisis is over.The Politics of Curating Contemporary Art Programme offers a dynamic and intensive experience that develops a shared vocabulary and critical framework in which we discuss phenomena ranging from post-colonialism to decolonizing the museum, from environmental change to sustainability in curatorial practices, from human rights to feminism and permacultures in artistic institutions. Applications for the second phase until February 9.In these horrible times for Ukraine, which put at risk our coexistence and all sorts of life in the world, the 4Cs stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. We are against the war and any actions towards it.Our Space to Help
Berlin art institutions are calling for a joint fundraising campaign at the Neue Nationalgalerie – for people fleeing Ukraine and arriving in our city. This is a list compiled by concerned cultural workers for our colleagues in Ukraine. The list is being updated and is not exhaustive. Our partner, Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts on the Curonian Spit in Lithuania has space to host art institutional teams from Ukraine, artists, and culture professionals with their families as well as full study courses with students to live and potentially continue conducting work and studies. When walking in the City you feel impelled to look up —up towards the top of the towering buildings. It’s almost as if you are being forced to make an act of obeisance to something.
Obeisance to what? To Power & Hierarchy and, in particular to masculine power and hierarchy.How do we think and practice a genuinely universal solidarity when some wars and conflicts are met with a searing silence?What does mediation mean/do for/in visual and culture studies? This is the question that we asked ourselves throughout the 4Cs, more particularly over the mediation labs and the workshops. In this handbook, we have gathered essays from curators and thinkers as well as the materials produced during the mediation activities of the 4Cs. Composed as much of theories as of practical examples, the handbook aims to provide a critical reflection on the transforming potential of mediation.This exhibition takes a look at the avant-garde practices that the psychiatrist Francesc Tosquelles carried out in the therapeutic, political and cultural field. Tosquelles transformed psychiatric institutions during the Republic and in fascist Europe. Today, he is an inspiration when addressing mental health policies in times of extreme crisis. This exhibition has the support of the 4Cs Project.The Listening Academy
