Superstudio Migrazioni

Begun in 1966, Superstudio’s journey led its members to reflect on ways of inhabiting a ‘round and rotating’ world. Superstudio Migrazioni offers a new perspective on the group’s œuvre, described as ‘radical’ by Germano Celant. More than an exhibition catalogue, Superstudio Migrazioni proposes three parallel yet complementary explorations – through texts and interviews, through images and through archives – of the collective journey that pushed architecture to its limits. At first ‘super’ and fundamentally realistic, and adopting consumption and production mechanisms in an ironic and critical manner, Superstudio’s architecture evolved to encompass ‘things, the body, the Earth’, before dissolving all materiality, retaining only a symbolic dimension and blending with life itself.
