One of the most influential groups in Italian radical architecture celebrates its 50th anniversary with an exhibition
From April 21 – September 4, 2016, MAXXI hosts the exhibition SUPERSTUDIO 50. Over 200 of Superstudio’s pieces will be featured. The pieces range from installations to photographs and publications, covering the career and development of the group. Some materials are from the group’s own archives and have never been previously displayed. Many of the works will progressively enter MAXXI’s architecture collection.
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.
