After almost twenty years of continued programming, the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona (Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre) has consolidated its position as a focus of attraction for culture and creativity, not only for the city of Barcelona, but for the whole of Catalonia and Spain, as well as internationally. The CCCB is a place for production and creation as well as exhibition, a focal point of culture in Barcelona that brings together cultural actors and users committed to the idea that culture is a basic necessity.
The CCCB offers a programme in which quality is non-negotiable, marked by complete creative freedom, in touch with different sensibilities, bringing a style of its own that is independent of trends and a will to generate debate and to critically review the present moment. The CCCB is faithful to two defining characteristics: an urban vocation and cultural quality.
At the same time, CCCB – Barcelona Contemporary Culture Centre – is a site for experimentation with artistic languages and codes, a meeting place for dialogue between academia and the public, a platform for innovative groups and creators, and a laboratory open to the cultural changes happening today. In short, a place where culture and the arts meet in Barcelona.
This season and with more than 250 exhibits, CCCB presents an exhibition that explores the power of spaces as the driving force of desire and shows how architecture has been a tool that controls behaviour and creates gender stereotypes in our patriarchal society.
It looks afresh at the proposals of Claude-Nicolas Ledoux,Charles Fourier, De Sade and Guy Debord, the radical architecture of the 1960s and 1970s, Carlo Mollino, Adolf Loos, Nicolas Schöffer, Wilhelm Reich, Playboy architecture and works by contemporary architects and artists.

Photobook Phenomenon is an exhibition intended to contribute to offering new perspectives on the importance and impact of the photobook in contemporary visual culture, charting a course that extends from its origins to the vast output of the present day.
“The photobook […] can be considered photography's ‘natural’ home.” Gerry Badger
