With PrimeTime the Museum’s video gallery is moving to the social media in the evenings. Thanks to the contribution of the artists, a selection of video artworks will be shared freely and accessible on all the museum channels.
Lastly, reflections on the scope of what is happening and how it all leads us to reconsider the meaning of specific works such as responsibility, care, choice and democracy will be the theme of the feature A new world, with men and women of science, culture, show business and communication, including Padre Paolo Benanti and the psychoanalyst Vittorio Lingiardi.
