Special Projects

Observers of corners

Disoriented by the contemporary art museum?
Explore back stage

Who is it aimed at?
Adults with mental health issues attending resocialisation programmes

What does it involve?
An educational programme structured around formative encounters, hands-on activities and workshops with artists

How does it work?
Zaha Hadid’s complex architecture offers multiple interstices and sloping corners, marginalised with respect to the exhibition configurations and hence privileged points of departure for observing MAXXI from a new perspective. It is here that the participants in this project will be located, divided into small groups to observe the corners of the museum from the corners, establishing at the same time a dialogue with the architectural space, with the works and with the visitors

Curated by Cesare Pietroiusti, Observers of corners, conceived as a continuation of the projects launched in 2010 with Se navigando uso la bussola and Se navigando…immagina, has been realised in collaboration with the Mental Health Departments of Asl Roma A and Roma E.< For further information:
