New York: Outpost

free for myMAXXI cardholders

curated by Milano Design Film Festival

Four encounters with auteur cinematography recounting the spirit of New York, Tokyo, Milan and London, global urban and architectural poles.

The programme of screenings flanks the series of lectures The Histories of Architecture. The Cities of the World with historical, poetic, analytic and inquiring gazes. Highlighting certain identifying traits of the cities and emphasising the most recent contemporary transformations as well as those with deeper roots that have determined their current spirit, the documentaries present a remarkably varied and complete overview.

New York: Outpost
Here where everything is experimented with and everything coexists, effervescent and spontaneous projects for the reclamation of public green areas have been born: from guerrilla gardening through to urban market gardens.
