The Institute of Cultural Inquiry
Los Angeles, CA 90035
The Institute of Cultural Inquiry (ICI) is a non-profit educational and cultural organization focused on ‘visual technologies’ and how they are used to document, imagine, remember and conceal the convergence of human activities and capabilities we call ‘culture.’ The Institute sponsors research, displays, symposia, workshops, performances and tactical interventions. In addition, it is committed to maintaining a number of long-term, ongoing projects that stretch across disciplines such as The AIDS Chronicles, The Manual of Lost Ideas, and Traumbagger (dream-dredger). The organization also maintains an active publishing program through the ICI Press. Headquartered in Los Angeles with satellite laboratories in London, Köln, and Venice, Italy, the ICI offers residency, curatorial, publishing, fieldwork and event horizon opportunities for visual researchers and/or fabricators and for curious spectators of visual culture.
