The Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona is one of the most visited exhibition and arts centres in the city of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.Situated in the Raval district, the Centre’s core theme is the city and urban culture. Its success is based on quality, its rather eclectic approach, attention to a broad cross section of publics and the unique way it addresses issues with the aim of linking the academic world with creative processes and citizens in general. The CCCB organizes and produces exhibitions, debates, festivals and concerts; programmes film cycles, courses and lectures; encourages creation using new technologies and languages, explores and promotes the ongoing fusion of languages and different genres, and takes in-house productions to other national and international arts centres, museums and institutions. The underlying aim of these activities is to generate debate, thinking and reflection on the theme of the city and public space, and other issues that define current affairs. The CCCB is also an open space for creators, associations and freelance programmers with whom it has forged links over the years.The CCCB offers the public access to part of its holdings, a manifestation of its activities in the form of a multimedia archive comprising materials created by the Centre during its years of activity. A wide variety of materials on key themes of contemporary culture and society are available for consultation in the CCCB ARCHIVE, which is constantly updated. Also available for public consultation is the Centre’s XCÈNTRIC ARCHIVE, a digital archive of experimental and documentary film, comprising over 700 titles related to its programme “Xcèntric. The CCCB’s Cinema”.

  • This autumn (until Dec 11th) this contemporary cultural center has chosen to focus on the philosopher Ramon Llull (1232-1316) and how his socalled combinatorial art has inspired artists and scientists...  read more »
  • We went thinking that exposure would report us the life and work of LLull, and that there was very little. It seems rather that the intention of the whole sample is present Llull as a precursor to computer science, rather dubious claim. Much expenditure, much paraphernalia and little content, in addition to some understandable for the non-scholar. The day that we were almost no visitors, and who had roamed the area at high speed. A pity of lost opportunity.

  • Lovely well thought out temporary exhibition space. Fabulous architure. Near the law ramblas. That's all I have to say. 
  • This is a gorgeous place. Just the grounds are worth visiting, not to mention the museum itself and all the expositions that they have.
  • Free entrance on Sunday afternoon. Go for a walk. It will surprise you and make you think.
  • Good modern museum close to Rambla
  • Great space a bit confusing walking in. Worth a visit.
  • Worth to visit museum with interesting and changing expositions.
