The CGAC's Activities and Pedagogical Department develops its programme with a primary goal: to bring art to society through the rigorous analysis of critical issues inherent in contemporary artistic activity.

Film seasons and conferences, workshops, seminars and concerts, make up the centre’s fundamental offer of activities, aiming to involve a wide range of audiences from the professional sector of the world of art and culture to an increasingly larger group of artists and fine art and history students, not to mention all those interested in the evolution of art and aesthetic reflection.

At the same time, the CGAC develops specific programmes for schools and colleges as well as guided tours, with the purpose of providing the various groups who come to the museum with the necessary tools to understand contemporary art and, from there, the world we live in.

In this workshop we will approach a reading of the city as a complex organism, using the concept of aesthetic experience as a primary tool. By this we mean everything that the different senses capture from a city and that constitutes the common heritage of citizenship (everyone sees the same façades, hears the same noises, gets wet by the rain on the same day).

A city is a complex organism. People with very different cultures, public or residential spaces that have changed over various periods of use, political or social struggles that reflect their tensions in the urban planning and architecture, the natural history of the place, the history of the world and global influences—they all shape the city and the life inhabiting it.
