MONDO Covid-19 has also closed the Museums to the public but has released creativity and among the initiatives born on the web and social media for the “Cultural Resistance”, one in particular continues to entertain the world of Art, the challenge #BetweenArtAndQuarantine or – in Dutch, mother tongue of the project – #TussenKunstenQuarantaine.
NEW YORK The Statue of Liberty. Times Square. The Empire State Building. The Brooklyn Bridge. The yellow cabs. Today everyone photographs the “classics” and shares with the whole world the photos on social media. So, what happens when every day, all day and from multiple angles, these symbolic places are photographed by everyone? If we put together those images, photos and videos, we could see the whole (hi)story of a place. “Typologies of New York City” is a 57-second video made exactly in this way, using 1.272 photos of the city found on Instagram, selected and combined in a coherent animation by creative Sam Morrison (@SamTheCobra on social media).

SEETIES Now we let ourselves be inspired by the birthday gift received from Barcelona, the city where CCT – 10 years ago – began its journey. A map of the world (in cork) on which to mark one’s steps, those already made but especially those still to accomplish. It says “LET’S TRAVEL THE WORLD” and today that’s our birthday seems like the perfect day to start dreaming of and planning new explorations, in search of many other stories to share… The perfect day to restart from here. #SeeCity #OneWorld – Love, CCTeam
SEETIES The smartphone as a creative tool for visual storytelling: How do smartphones change our way of seeing, observing, capturing? Are images taken on smartphones simple snaps or art works on their own right? We have decided to learn more about this topic interviewing Rosa Roth, founder and editor-in-chief of THE SMART VIEW – an inspirational independent magazine dedicated to mobile photography.

NEW YORK It took three months of calculations to build this reduced model of the Manhattan district, using old and broken electronic parts. Who made this work? Zayd Menk, apparently a very young artist, a 17-year-old student who lives in Zimbabwe. He made this artwork for his school art project.
TANKWA TOWN In the semidesert Karoo – halfway along the R355, a 250km untarred road between Calvinia and Ceres in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa (that means on the longest stretch in the country without petrol stations, nearby assistance, phone signal) – there is a magic place: a temporary city that every year since 2007 appears and disappears in just one week.
PISTOIA, medieval city, conceals a contemporary fervour. Are you curious to discover all the places that create this particular geometric shape on the city map?

PRATO “Some travels seem more important than others, we would even say more remarkable. No need to go far far far away to find beauty and to discover great things in the world. It’s what we have learned while we were visiting Prato. An apparently tiny city in Tuscany, 20 minutes away from Florence. Tiny in appearance, but big with all the things it offers, in terms of history, food, and obviously of culture. As we thought would be just a classic trip about as we usually do, discovered way more.” Here is the story by Jennifer Padjemi & Mélody Thomas, Parisian journalists and friends, founders of What’s Good Newsletter! #CCTravellers2016
