The centre has an exhaustive collection of references on contemporary thinking and experimental film
If you happen to have some free time during the holiday season, a good way of using it could be to pay a visit to the Archives of the CCCB, which contain more than 10,000 multimedia references on key themes in the worlds of contemporary culture and thinking, made up in large part of items relating to the centre’s debates, exhibitions, festivals, concerts and publications. You will also find the centre’s bibliographic collection, with some 3,000 monographs, collected as documentary support for the activities organised here. The archive is not currently accessible online and consultations must be carried out in person. However, the timetables are ample, opening from 3pm to 8pm from Tuesday to Friday and from 11am to 8pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. Admission is free and free Wi-Fi is available.
Another interesting place to visit while at CCCB is its Audiovisual Space, with a varied collection of works that share a firm commitment by their creators, both in terms of contents and formal solutions. Inside, you will also find the Xcèntric Archive, CCCB’s archive of experimental film with over 1,000 titles by prominent creators, a screening room with capacity for twelve people and an area for individual consultations. Most of the works here are short films by artists who have made film their means of creative expression and many of the pieces have rarely been seen and cannot be accessed online. The Audiovisual Space is open from Tuesday to Sunday (and on public holidays) from 11am to 8pm.
