4Cs - From Conflict to Conviviality through Creativity and Culture


UCP-FCH | Post-Graduate in Politics of Curating Contemporary Art – B-learning

The Politics of Curating Contemporary Art Programme offers a dynamic and intensive experience that develops a shared vocabulary and critical framework in which we discuss phenomena ranging from post-colonialism to decolonizing the museum, from environmental change to sustainability in curatorial practices, from human rights to feminism and permacultures in artistic institutions. Applications for the second phase until February 9.


In these horrible times for Ukraine, which put at risk our coexistence and all sorts of life in the world, the 4Cs stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people. We are against the war and any actions towards it.

Ukraine: Emergency Temporary Relocation Resources for artists and cultural workers

This is a list compiled by concerned cultural workers for our colleagues in Ukraine. The list is being updated and is not exhaustive. Our partner, Nida Art Colony of Vilnius Academy of Arts on the Curonian Spit in Lithuania has space to host art institutional teams from Ukraine, artists, and culture professionals with their families as well as full study courses with students to live and potentially continue conducting work and studies.

Power & Hierarchy — Looking Up!

When walking in the City you feel impelled to look up —up towards the top of the towering buildings. It’s almost as if you are being forced to make an act of obeisance to something. Obeisance to what? To Power & Hierarchy and, in particular to masculine power and hierarchy.

4Cs HANDBOOK - Reflections and Actions Upon Mediation Practices

What does mediation mean/do for/in visual and culture studies? This is the question that we asked ourselves throughout the 4Cs, more particularly over the mediation labs and the workshops. In this handbook, we have gathered essays from curators and thinkers as well as the materials produced during the mediation activities of the 4Cs. Composed as much of theories as of practical examples, the handbook aims to provide a critical reflection on the transforming potential of mediation.

CCCB - Francesc Tosquelles. Like a Sewing Machine in a Field of Wheat
