The Center for Communication and Context (CCCK) has been developed during a residency period in Kiev in August 2006 as a collaboration between Ingela Johansson, Volodymyr Kuznetsov and Inga Zimprich. Within the exhibition Private With Public CCCK started to investigate its host-center's history, ideological background and future perspectives. Getting involved with a former Soros institution the idea emerged to follow other cases of Soros Centers and to investigate other East-European institutions which were established with the help of or dependant on Western cultural funding. Under the term of Post-funding we would like to expand this project during 2007, researching emerging local financial models and the interdependencies developed in cultural East-West exchange.
Since our first visit to the Center for Contemporary Art, Kiev (CCA) the local situation transformed significantly. With the appearance of the Pinschuk Art Center CCA's exclusive role to provide a window to and from the West has changed. Given the space to shift its focus CCA is reformulating its program aiming to provide more space for experimentation, research and exhibition practices beyond the merely visual. However, the relevant decision of the Renaissance Foundation whether to support the Center in the future is still pending.
We would like to thank Yuliya Vaganova, director of CCA, for her support, her courage and energy. Without her this project would not have been started.
