CCA: For/About/On Architecture

In recent years, the Canadian Centre for Architecture has set to question the assumptions on which architects operate. We have embarked on the study and revision of an undeclared territory of false assumptions, preconceptions, and attitudes in an attempt to evidence hidden agendas. We seek to investigate and explore the “grey zone” of contemporary culture, contemporary society, and contemporary architecture to critically expose its contradictions.

The aim of this lecture is to show the transformation of curatorial practice and exhibitions into means for the exploration of themes and emerging problems as one of the CCA’s many responses to our current circumstances. It is an effort in shifting our attention from exhibitions “of architecture” to exhibitions “for/about/on architecture;” in trying to frame specific issues in a more critical way. It is not an effort in finding or offering possible solutions, but in revealing diverse directions and potentials. It is a critique of our present conditions and a suggestion for alternative paths.

Lecture by Mirko Zardini.
