Curated by Giampiero Sanguigni with the collaboration of Marco Brizzi, promoted by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Rome, organized by the Pecci Center and by Image, realized with the support of the Netherlands Architecture Fund, the Mondriaan Fund and the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Prato, the exhibition reflects on the possibility of shaping new and original modes of production in response to the international crisis.
The reality of space is questioned, investigated, reproduced, represented and criticized by artists and architects that have long searched to redefine themselves and their role in society.
