Book Launch: The Museum Is Not Enough
Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA)

A conversation over drinks about the first volume of The Museum Is Not Enough, co-published by the CCA and Sternberg Press.

In this evening hosted by SYNNIKA, Mirko Zardini, Albert Ferré, and Nikolaus Hirsch will speculate about the role of institutions in relating architecture to contemporary public concerns.

The Museum Is Not Enough is the result of collective reflections on architecture, contemporary social concerns, institutions, and the public undertaken by the CCA in recent years. Building on years of thematic investigations and of a continued questioning of the role of cultural institutions and the issues they face today, the book puts forward the CCA’s own positions and opens them up to a dialogue with designers, curators, photographers, publishers, and other institutions who ask themselves similar questions.

The volume includes contributions from Noura Al Sayeh, Greg Barton, Ruth Estévez, Fredi Fischli and Niels Olsen, Stefano Graziani, Dan Handel, Martin Huberman, Wilfried Kuehn, Kalle Lasn, Maria Lind, Kieran Long, Ligia Nobre, Mike Pepi, Damon Rich, Filippo Romano, Mika Savela, Bernd Scherer, Jack Self, Astria Suparak, Shirley Surya, Jesús Vassallo, James Voorhies, and Mark Wigley. It is edited by Giovanna Borasi, Albert Ferré, Francesco Garutti, Jayne Kelley, and Mirko Zardini, and is designed by Jonathan Hares.
