L’Internationale is a museum network based on a long-term relationship outside the usual parameters. Unlike other similar experiences, this network is defined as a new artistic internationalism, not hierarchical and decentralised, and based on the value of difference and horizontal exchanges. The aim is to establish links between the participating institutions, to create networks, to favour transversal research and share methodologies.
The first collaboration began with the project 1957–1986. Art from the Decline of Modernism to the Rise of Globalisation, which took place in 2010–12. The second major project, pursued between 2013 and 2017, was entitled The Uses of Art: The Legacy of 1848 and 1989. The years chosen marked two turning points in the formation of a new citizenry. June 2018 saw the launch of the third project, entitled Our Many Europes, a new four-year programme that focuses on the 1990s, the decade in which contemporary Europe was born.
