Foto/Industria is the first biennial in the world dedicated to photography of industry and work. At its 3rd edition, from October 12th to November 19th, 2017 "FOTO/INDUSTRIA - Etica ed estetica al lavoro" presents 14 exhibitions of international photographers hosted at MAST and in a number of historic and cultural landmarks of Bologna, palaces and residences of great artistic value, offering to the public the chance to explore new territories of the photographic creation and at the same time to discover a surprising, fascinating city. Through Foto/Industria the MAST Foundation aims at a double goal: on one hand promoting photography in its historic and contemporary dimensions and on the other narrating through different gazes the extraordinary relevance of industry and its power of transforming geographic and human communities.
The exhibitions are accompanied by a programme of side events, such as meetings and guided visits with the artists, round tables with the protagonists of the world of photography and contemporary culture, theatre performances and concerts, docufilms in collaboration with Cineteca di Bologna. Admission is free but a previous reservation is required - Read more
