I Am Not Able To Find My Thoughts Without Passing Through Your Eyes.

In 2020 the research project The Independent, at MAXXI celebrates its 5th anniversary. The project identifies and promotes social spaces for independent thinking. Coinciding with the museum’s 10th anniversary, a summit has been called to mark this occasion by exploring the power of friendship, solidarity and alliances.

By bringing together actors from the art world and beyond, the summit addresses how independent spaces and art projects question the conventions of cultural legitimacy, analysing reasons for, and means by which they organise support structures, encourage forms of solidarity and foster alliances.
FRIENDSHIP | SOLIDARITY | ALLIANCES is divided into four chapters, characterised by different content and duration: Solidarity and Interdependent Transformation are discussion-based, Movements proposes performative interventions, and Becoming a Collective body, a comprehensive film programme.
