We are in the midst of an extraordinary global digital revolution: how are museums and artists coping with it?

Digital tools design a new world, multiplying and expanding forms of relationships, communication, creative production and access to knowledge. As a result, we face the ever-growing challenge of imagining the future immersed in a world, now more than ever, in rapid and constant change.

How does the way of valuing, preserving, producing art and critical thinking change in this digital present? MAXXI invites important Italian and international institutions’ representatives in dialogue with some of the main protagonists of the What a Wonderful World exhibition project to answer these questions and to reflect together on the future of culture and art by looking at the new horizons and boundaries of truth and reality that the metaverse and artificial intelligence are reconfiguring.
