Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid (CBA)

Madrid, Spain

The Círculo de Bellas Artes (CBA) is one of the most important private cultural centres in Europe. A multidisciplinary centre with activities ranging from the visual arts to literature, science, philosophy, cinema and the performing arts. Known as „Casa Europa“ for its recognized role as a forum for reflection and debate by and for European civil society, the CBA is not only sponsoring an intense debate on key issues of European construction, but is succeeding in taking these issues beyond the academic or political sphere and into civil society.
