THE INDEPENDENT. WHAT IS IT?
The Independent is a research project focusing on the identification and promotion of independent spaces and thinking. We are working to broaden and challenge the current limits of museum institutions, to stimulate and develop diverse ways of acting within contemporary reality.
The Independent explores the contents offered by independent and innovative realities, monitoring the growth of independent spaces and applying a strategy of viral awareness within which each independent group has its own virtual space in which it can present its activities.
The aim is to trace an expanding map of all the most audacious and free independent realities active around the world. We want to monitor the life of independent groups and their evolution and offer them a common ground of exchange.
WHAT TYPE OF GROUP ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We are looking for independent thinkers working in the fields of the art, architecture, design and Social Practice active on the national or international stage for at least a year; innovators who wish to combine artistic thinking with their fields of research.
You have at least a year’s programming activity behind.
You have an open-minded approach capable of seeing reality from diverse perspectives.
You are not tied to public bodies, you are not focused on economic gain and your resources are reinvested in new projects.
Your cultural and scientific programming is still active.
DO NOT PARTICIPATE IF
You are only interested in making an exhibition.
Your field of activity is different to those indicated above.
SELECTION AND PARTICIPATION METHOD
Your independent group will be included in the map and will have access to its own virtual space if the profile corresponds to the research criteria indicated above.
Once application has been made, you will receive a confirmation email and a password that will enable you to fill out the form with information about the independent group to which you belong. The MAXXI curatorial team will verify this information and will decide whether your group corresponds to what we are looking for. The groups will have their own space within the site dedicated to the project and may update the calendar with the events.
The registration is valid for 12 months. After this period, the curatorial team of the museum reserves the right to extend or not the participation of the groups.
