Besides the playlist of the best CCCB activities available online, another more complete form of seeing the CCCB’s programme is by visiting the CCCB Archive (located in front of the C3Bar or at the exit of the exhibitions and open every day except Monday, from 11 a.m.). In addition to offering some very comfy poufs where you can nod off or enjoy its free Wi-Fi, it offers computers where you can view videos of the debates and more multimedia documents that are not available online. The space is also a good library with books on subjects dealt with during the year by the CCCB.

Fans of experimental and art-house films also have a made-to-measure cinephile’s corner: the Xcèntric Archive (located on Floor 1 of the CCCB, before taking the escalators to go up to the exhibitions). The Xcèntric Archive has accumulated over 700 works by independent artists and experimental filmmakers. If what you want is a small taster or to discover the Archive’s hidden treasures, the audiovisuals team produces the Xcèntric menus, short-duration selections of the best pieces. You will find the Xcèntric menu sheets at the Archive itself.

#repàsCCCB: A playlist of the best CCCB activities available online

July 22nd, 2013 1 Comment

Before setting off on holiday and switching off the machine 2.0 (we’ve programmed a series of Tweets and posts on our Facebook page, and our website will be constantly updated so that you don’t forget about us during August, but we’ll be on the beach!), we would like to review the best activities that have taken place at the CCCB during the year so far.

We have asked the CCCB’s programmers which have been the best moments of the year worth remembering and recovering. Debates, concerts, exhibitions, articles, authors that have left their mark and that we bring together in a playlist of videos and recommended texts. So, make yourselves comfortable, get your computers fired up and take note!

You will be able to follow the contents of this playlist on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #repàsCCCB. The other summer hashtag will be #Gandules13, where you will be able to follow all the news on the CCCB’s cinema al fresco.



Music and festivals

Kosmopolis 2013

The amplified literature fest Kosmopolis left us with some unique moments: the conference with two of the masters of the British comic, Dave Mc Kean and Paul Gravett;  Jorge Carrión and Nacho Vigalondo starring in a fun battle of the series; David Carabén and his show This is not a love song and two of the Third Culture science communication events, The Hunting of the Boson and Martian Time-Slip. On the Kosmopolis website you can check out all the multimedia materials generated by the festival.

Soy Cámara, the CCCB’s television programme is broadcast live (on TVE 2, one Friday each month) and it also an online programme. All the episodes can be viewed on the CCCB’s web. We wouldn’t know which episode to recommend to you! They are small audiovisual treasures lasting 25 minutes that tackle themes related with the CCCB’s programming.

Innovation in the cultural sphere

The renewed CCCB Lab blog proposes a series of quality, in-depth reads on themes related with cultural innovation. They have started a series of articles on how the Internet is changing our lives, have committed to articles on scientific communication (The Elementary Bestiary and On the Multiplicity of Intelligences) and have continued reflecting on how culture changes with articles such as #museumnext 2013: The crisis (of museums) as an opportunity, Analysing the virtual audience, The new productive ecosystem: personal, distribute and open production, City, space and people who do things, The playful attitude as the basis of the creative process, and The revolution of the commons. Unmissable summer reading!

We look forward to seeing you again in September, with a new programme and new cultural contents. Happy holidays!
