The Museum Is Not Enough is the result of collective reflections on architecture, contemporary social concerns, institutions, and the public undertaken by the Canadian Centre for Architecture in recent years. Building on years of thematic investigations and 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.
This publication is conceived as the first volume of a yearly magazine with which the CCA will explore urgent questions defining its curatorial activity. 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.
