A passionate work of research, reflection and debate on the first decade of the 21st century, through the MAXXI way of life.
In 2020 MAXXI celebrates its first 10 years: an opportunity to reflect on the identity of the museum, retrace the path taken and set the future. The exhibition, which explores 5 major themes, was born from a passionate work of research, reflection and debate, and sets its gaze on the first decade of the 21st century through the point of view of MAXXI and the artists who animated and transformed it. It is not intended to be a self-referential summary of the museum's exhibitions, but an "immaterial" reinterpretation of them in a perspective that lays the foundations for a story for the future.
In a thematic and chronological reading, thousands of images, videos, sounds and words, multimedia installations are presented. The set-up curated by the Dutch studio Inside-Outside by Petra Blaisse, recognized for its innovative contribution in the design of exhibitions and landscape architecture, creates an engaging environment focused on the multi-sensorial experience. An oral history of the MAXXI journey through the presentation of the words of the artists, curators and museum staff.
