“And I’m wary of the present”

Astria Suparak
THE MUSEUM IS NOT ENOUGH (Centre Canadien d’Architecture/Sternberg Press)
October 2019 /

The Museum Is Not Enough is the result of collective reflections on architecture, contemporary social concerns, institutions, and the public undertaken by the Centre Canadien d’Architecture in recent years. Fueled by the CCA’s continued questioning of the role of cultural institutions and the issues they face today, the book initiates conversations with accomplices who ask themselves similar questions.”

Topics addressed in this volume include the institution’s engagement with the present, the significance of the archive as a site for the production of new ideas, display strategies in architecture exhibitions, the need for mediation in art, and the impact of the digital in current museum practices.
