The wounds and violence present in African society and the search for possible resolutions.

About

In today's world there is ever greater disparity in the distribution of resources and more and more people are subject to political and economic deprivation. On the occasion of the second Italy-Africa Conference, MAXXI carries out two parallel projects: the great African Métropolis exhibition , which, structuring itself around the concept of the city, stages works by African artists, and on the other Road to Justice , an experimental project that integrates works from the museum collection with other choices for this specific occasion.

In the history of the African continent the deportation of entire populations and subsequent colonization have led to the progressive destruction of ancient cultures, to the alteration of political, religious and social equilibria. Over the centuries the presumed superiority of the Whites on the native populations has justified the oppression, the exploitation and the depletion of the territory. Contemporary artists are the custodians of these events and the exhibition tells of this imbalance, this trauma and whether it is possible to imagine its recomposition.
