MUdec United, the new publication of the MUDEC – Museo delle Culture di Milano, one of the Italian leading institutions, is a book-zine dedicated to interdisciplinary research on world cultures. The first issue addresses the themes explored with the exhibition Rainbow – Colors and wonders between myths, arts and science, a project composed of different stories related to the rainbow as a natural, cultural, spiritual and human phenomenon.

MUdec United starts from Milan—among the five fastest-growing European cities, especially in quality—and extends threads of relationships with the most disparate points on the planet. Threads that connect scholars and scholars, writers for images, artists, places, stories and ideas.

Each issue of MUdec United addresses a different theme, starting with the Museum's exhibitions. Rainbow, the first issue, is linked to the exhibition of the same name, opening Feb. 16, 2023 at MUDEC. It includes contributions from artists, writers, and researchers—among others: Carlo Antonelli, Marina Pugliese, Lanier Graham, Carolina Orsini, Katia Inozemtseva, Tarek Elhaik, Giorgio Bardelli, Giorgio Chiozzi, Michela Podestà & Stefano Scali, Agnese Maccari, Maria Loh, Federico Campagna, Romi Crawford, ruangrupa, Elisa Giuliano + Zairong Xiang, Masha Salazkina, Luca Caminati, Medina Dugger, Federico Ercole, Maddalena Novati, Gabriela Del Castillo, Cesare Bernardo, Flavio Favelli, Franco Summa, Miltos Manetas, Michael Roman, Nawal El Saadawi, Terry Riley, Cory Arcangel, Norma Jeane, Emi Fontana, Porpora Marcasciano, Jordan Anderson, Nadeesha Uyangoda.

While providing extensive information about the exhibition to which it is linked, it is not a catalogue. It is a pure magazine, a third object, arising from the generative process of ideas (visuals first and foremost) coming out of the Museum and opening it to the world.

MUdec United is agile, but with great scientific depth. It envisions respect for cultural traditions, an awareness of the necessary and ongoing work of removing colonial (and linguistic) prisons and fighting against their appropriation. And it takes a step further, toward languages in the making; especially those arising from the new, second and third generations inhabiting the world, starting with the city from which it originates.
For this—and for being produced post-Covid—it looks at the possible exploration of universes beyond the existing ordinary one: out-of-this-worlds, new worlds, other worlds, seen from a pencil-drawn spaceship.
