Round table and film screening “The Street Kids: a project beyond suburbia” Friday 10 February 2023, 14:30 – 18:30 at MAXXI Museum. An opportunity to reflect on the concept of the periphery beyond the sense of a geographical boundary. Because the centre-periphery binomial still represents a structure of consciousness.
The meeting starts from the European platform Magic Carpets. This awareness-raising project aims to cultivate a sense of belonging and to introduce to a broad and international audience young emerging talents who are called upon each year to confront different local identities through residency projects. Inspired by the reflections of Pier Paolo Pasolini, the Magic Carpets project contributes to reformulating the notion of borders by initiating the development of widespread creativity.
On the occasion of the meeting, the docufilm CORE made by Monkeys Video Lab and curated by Latitudo Art Projects and the catalog for the Magic Carpets Landed exhibition published by Quodlibet in collaboration with the Kaunas Biennial will be presented.
