Philosophical practice is a group meditation that does not require philosophical knowledge but only curiosity, willingness to talk about yourself, desire to become aware of the philosophical value of everyday life and to come into contact with other sensitivities. MAXXI proposes three meetings on spirituality to investigate through the dialogue on the intersection between the visible and the invisible, between the expressible and the inexpressible, between what we feel and what we think.
Arachnomancy Cards by Tomàs Saraceno is inspired by the spider, an animal that at all latitudes and in all eras symbolizes different aspects of the ambiguous relationship between good and evil, the visible and the dark, the past and the future, the world of the living and that of the dead. The third philosophical practice will discuss the resonance that this work has in each of us, as an echo of the complexity of those relationships in everyday life.
