"Museo per l'Immaginazione Preventiva – Editorial" is the show-cum-manifesto which reopened MACRO in 2020 and introduced the curatorial work of the new artistic director Luca Lo Pinto. Through the works on display, featured with a view to anticipating the themes to be developed over a three-year programme, the exhibition also opened up a broader reflection on the identity of the contemporary museum institution, inviting visitors to let themselves be guided by the artists' visions and the questions they pose.
The publication Editorial: An Exhibition in Words
brings together the voices of ten of the most important contemporary Italian writers—Emanuele Trevi
, Valerio Magrelli, Veronica Raimo, Ivan Carozzi, Nadia Terranova, Igiaba Scego, Alessandro Lolli, Elena Stancanelli, Francesco Pacifico and Chiara Valerio—who transformed their visit to the show into a narrative, imagining further dialogues with the works displayed. The book, deliberately bereft of imagery, reflects on the exhibition exclusively through the use of the word.
