ABOUT CIA (Cultural Industries Association)
Through our regular programs of concerts, art exhibitions, film screenings, seminars and workshops, it is our hope to bring to you not what have we seen already, but rather how we perceived these ideas, their contexts, and how these seemingly abstract concepts can affect and relate to our everyday lives. To prompt changes, renew our senses and debase our previously fixated point of views, this is the only way to a future – any future away from here. According to Plato, we live chained inside a dark cave; all we can see is the back wall and the shadows that move there. Carl Jung called this his shadow work. That what we in fact seeing are aspects of ourselves that fall over one another. Shadows. Projections. Our associations - of the culture industries.
