thematic study daysGermano Celant in dialogue with architectural language

MAXXI auditorium
free admission subject to availability
the meeting is part of the series of study days Germano Celant. Cronistoria di un critico militante

A special event to delve deeper into the important role played by architecture within his critical, curatorial and exhibition practice.

Germano Celant doesn’t only investigate the architectural language from a historical-critical point of view, through texts and exhibitions dedicated to its currents and protagonists: think of the definition of “radical architecture” coined in 1972, but also the study of figures such as Mario Bellini, Zaha Hadid, Herzog & de Meuron, Hans Hollein, Frank O. Gehry, Richard Meier, Gio Ponti, Aldo Rossi and many others.
