Promoted and organized by Fondazione MAST, Foto/Industria 2019 is the fourth Biennale of Photography on Industry and Work which takes place in Bologna from 24 October to 24 November and will take over the entire city with 10 exhibitions and “Anthropocene” at MAST, curated by Urs Stahel.
Curated by Francesco Zanot, the exhibitions – which run under the central themes of the built environment and the technosphere– celebrate big names of the history of photography, such as Albert Renger-Patzsch and André Kertész, as well as contemporary Italian and international artists like Luigi Ghirri, Lisetta Carmi, Armin Linke and David Claerbout, and young internationally established photographers such as Matthieu Gafsou, Stephanie Syjuco, Yosuke Bandai and Delio Jasse.
“The vast impact of the intervention by humans on the environment and everything surrounding them is made evident by the diversity of subjects and places represented in the artists’ images. A fundamental medium for shaping and constantly updating the collective imagination over the last two centuries, photography is at once an indispensable research tool and a product of the inextinguishable human need to change the world and see it afresh,” observes artistic director Francesco Zanot.
