OSA – Vera and Donald Blinken Open Society Archives

The OSA at Central European University (CEU) is a complex archival institution. OSA is both a  repository  of important collections, primarily related to the history of the Cold War and grave international human rights violations, and a  laboratory  of archival experiments on new ways of assessing, contextualizing, presenting, and making use of archival documents.

KÉK – Contemporary Architecture Centre

KÉK is an independent architectural cultural centre operated by young Hungarian architects, artists and civilians. The centre aims to open new perspectives in architectural and urban thinking in Hungary through its fresh, provoking and focused programs, relevant also in international context.
