Rome – MAAM Metropoliz

Source: Cronache di Ordinario Razzismo
Location Rome
Name MAAM Metropoliz
Community Level Street / Neighborhood
Sector Urban Regeneration, Cultural and Artistic Offer
Year of beginning 2012
Who started the initiative (NGO, public administration, association) Citizens
Object Continuing the work of the Space Metropoliz artistic, cinema, and ethnographic project, MAAM arises in an occupied old factory as an open public space that welcomes new forms of artistic experimentation and social cooperation.

Art becomes a collective endeavour in this space, as artists are invited to contribute for free, interacting with the factory and the inhabitants of the neighborhood.

The Project puts forward a new model for artistic institutions, and contributed to create a new relationship linking artistic expression, politics and the city. Starting from its name, the “Museum of the Other and the Elsewhere” is indeed symbolically opposing the idea of art that shows through the work and the esthetic of the MAXXI and MACRO museums, using its peripheral position, its complete absence of funds and its proximity to the community as its strength.
