(A contemporary art museum in files focusing on art and its context, art theory and practice, cultural studies and critical theory. Comprehensive (international) database  “a capsule of knowledge". A frame and platform for ideas, dialogue, communication, empowerment focusing on issues that reflect the current debate in the art field and new cultural theories — about the social and political relevance of art, its autonomy and its changes.

Under different names, the CAA has been active since 1985 in Lia and Dan Perjovschi’s home in Oradea, in the frame of the experimental studio at Art Academy Bucharest, in Lia and Dan Perjovschi’s artist studio in Bucharest, in national and international museums, galleries, non-profit or artist-run spaces and in the mass media. CAA has been initiated and is maintained by Lia Perjovschi with the financial help of Dan Perjovschi. CAA is currently working with an investigative method, searching for sense, hidden and lost ideas, relevant works and authors - normalcy as exception - and preserving a dizzydent (from dizzy) critical attitude in a context of consumerism and intellectual stagnation.
