Materials for a new world: forms and arguments

MAXXI Piazza – admittance free subject to availability of places
myMAXXI cardholders may reserve places by writing to mymaxxi@fondazionemaxxi.it by the day before the event (10 places available)

Three events alternating poems and essays, critical interventions and reflections, based on the works on show in the MAXXI piazza.

Philosophers and writers, academics and poets analyse the creative idioms of the XX century and contemporaneity

In the final seminar in the series we shall be discussing new visions of the world drawn from a civilisation that revisits the materials of tradition from an alienated point of view.

The installation Winter Moon, by Ugo Rondinone, provides cues for a reflection on the relationship between real and artificial and on the modes of dialectical relations between these spheres.
