Foto/Industria is the first world forum to explore the vast sphere of photography in its relationships business and industry. It’s organised by the MAST Foundation in collaboration with Les Rencontres de la Photographie in Arles, under the artistic direction of François Hébel.
The first edition presents 17 exhibitions displayed in 10 cultural landmarks of Bologna and at MAST, which hosts the show Industrial Worlds, curated by Urs Stahel.
The programme includes retrospectives on industrial work, presentations of specific projects, exhibitions of undisputed masters of corporate photography, bodies of works from private institutions. Achieving a dialogue between different collections, exhibiting previously unshown works, opening company archives, fostering comparisons, curiosity and interest by engaging museums, bank foundations and institutions, bringing to the general public the wealth of industrial photography and sharing with visitors the passion for images – this is the aim of Foto/Industria 2013.
