The MAXXI - Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo in Rome shows an extensive overview exhibition of works by artists from the former Yugoslavia. The exhibition 'Bigger than Myself. Heroic Voices from Ex-Yugoslavia ' is curated by Zdenka Badovinac and Giulia Ferracci. It asks questions about how to deal with values and forces that are greater than ourselves: global capitalism and heroic standing up for ideas and convictions. Some of the 50 artists with around 100 works are also represented in the Art Collection Telekom. The 'Angels with Dirty Faces' by Croatian artist Igor Grubić are presented in the windows of the facade of MAXXI.
