For 2021, the V Biennial of photography on Industry and Wors offers the public for this edition 11 exhibitions: 10 hosted in historic locations in the city center and one at MAST.
At the heart of Foto/Industria 2021 is the food industry, a theme of fundamental importance due to its inextricable link to wider questions of philosophy and biology, history and science, politics and economics. Our primary need for food overlaps here with that of images. It is a journey that develops as part of a timeless, yet highly topical subject, given the rapid developments in a sector currently responding to the most important global transformations: demographics, climate change and sustainability.
Through the filter of photography, “the mirror with a memory”, food bears witness to an era and a civilization, capable of narrating its relationship with tradition, nature, technology, the past, the future and much more. The MAST Foundation has entrusted the artistic direction to Francesco Zanot to carry on with the project of the Biennial that François Hébel started in 2013.
