This extensive publication weaves together critical essays and contributions by curators and academics with former artists-in-residence at NTU CCA, and documents past exhibitions in photographs. Place.Labour.Capital. serves equally as a rear-view mirror that enables an art institution to review its own history and its position in the time of global art. Drawing connections across disciplines and fields of practice, this will allow readers to encounter, experience, and engage critically with ideas that bear a sense of the urgency and have relevance in the wider social sphere.

Art: Art--General Studies
"An inspiration and a valuable tool to anyone trying to find ways of building relevant arts institutions for the future."
Sally Tallant, director, Liverpool Biennial
"This remarkable collection reminds us that institution building remains enormously significant as a means of opening up new spaces, claims, communities, dialogues, publics, and trajectories for critical artistic practice. Place.Labour.Capital. will be central reading for all those invested in understanding or in instituting new trajectories for artistic and curatorial work, and for all those committed to opening up new social and political spaces through which to do so."
Felicity D. Scott, Columbia University
