Ephemeral Spaces and Radical Museology

Postgraduate course. Face-to-face.


UPC School
This postgraduate course is also part of the training track for the master's degree Design and Creation of Spaces.

This postgraduate course has enabled two great institutions to work together, the UPC School and the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (CCCB). The course sets an interesting challenge: to delve into the CCCB's past from a contemporary viewpoint. The ultimate objective is to provide tools to future specialists in exhibition design.

This close examination of the CCCB's archives will provide the core content of the two workshops on which the course is based. The first will examine the Centre's records and a review will be made of the exhibitions it has held since it first opened its doors in 1994. The second will look at exhibition spaces and how to approach them in a perceptive and sensitive manner.
