Just some of the over 70 artists and architects featuring in the exhibition Remembering is not enought.
The exhibition of MAXXI collection emphasizes the necessity to embrace a more open vision and dynamic approach to develop and manifest the collection of the museum: not only conserving and presenting some excellent works from history and contemporary times, but moreover activating a living process in which the memories of history are continuously reconstructed in order to provide new vitality that keeps the work alive so that it continues to produce meaningful inspiration for us to understand our own time. Bringing art and architecture collections together, the current project intends to put forward the dialogues and interactions between both fields in order to create a new cultural context for innovative debates and exchanges about the significance of contemporary creation and democracy. Eventually, it seeks to open further discussions on the reinvention of art museums in our time.
