Emilia-Romagna at Work

On the occasion of Fotografia Europea 2016, MAST Foundation in Bologna opened new exhibitions dedicated to work and the landscape in Emilia-Romagna, featuring over 200 images, some video, one film and thirty five books on the environments, situations, and contexts found in the Emilia region.
In A Tile, Some Milk, a Machine and Logistics – Photographs of Emilia Romagna at Work, curated by Urs Stahel, works by major photographers reflect on developments in the economy and landscape that have affected the Emilia-Romagna region in recent decades. The MAST exhibitions develop the theme of Via Emilia which is the main topic of the XI edition of Fotografia Europea 2016 but addressing it to the photographic representation of work, industry and economy, in line with the main mission of MAST Foundation. The exhibition aims to weave a storyline organised into groups of contrasting photographs. «The task of these images – explains Urs Stahel – is to show us how old industries disappear, replaced by new factories and production systems with cutting-edge technology, and how a traditional landscape and an ancient land contrast with the new areas devoted to advanced service industries, to trade, technology, and speed, and how similar phenomena are reflected not only in the machine and ceramics industries, but also in those of food production and small business». The photographers' work, along with scenes from the film Il deserto rosso (Red Desert, 1964) by Michelangelo Antonioni, craft a tale that faithfully represents the economic evolution of Emilia-Romagna and the ongoing transformation of the manufacturing industry.
As a side event, the documentary Le radici dei sogni – L’Emilia-Romagna tra cinema e paesaggio (The Roots of Dreams – Emilia-Romagna between Cinema and Landscape, 73 min.), made by Francesca Zerbetto and Dario Zanasi in 2015, will be shown in a continuous loop on Level 0. In addition, a display of 35 books on the environments, situations, and contexts of Emilia Romagna, made available by Linea di Confine, completes the exhibition.
