Known for the strength and variety of its images, Superstudio is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. Marking the occasion, the exhibition brings together the most important drawings, photomontages and installations from The Continuous Monument series (1969), the Architectural Histograms (1969-70) and The Twelve Ideal Cities (1971). These projects demonstrated the possibilities and the limits of architecture.

Part of the exhibition is devoted to the group’s videos, including the previously unseen Continuous Monument, which has been produced by MAXXI for this exhibition. Also screening will be the five films of The Fundamental Acts (Life, Educations, Ceremony, Love, Death, 1972-73), Superstudio’s most ambitious attempt to tackle the relationship between life and design.
