Our Greatest Artefact: The City is CAMOC's newest publication. Edited by Ian Jones, Eric Sandweiss, Marlen Mouliou, and Chet Orloff and published in 2012, it is a collection of essays from our conferences in Istanbul, Shanghai, and Berlin. You can download a free PDF here.
The International Committee for the Collections and Activities of Museums of Cities is one of ICOM's youngest International Committees. It is a forum for people who work in or are interested in museums about cities, urban planners, historians, economists, architects or geographers, all of whom can share knowledge and experience, exchange ideas and explore partnerships across national boundaries. In short, CAMOC is about cities and the people who live in them.
