The Biennale is the first initiative of its kind in the world to be devoted to industrial, corporate and work photography, with the aim of representing one of the main dimensions of contemporary life and of stimulating reflection on the working world. The images, taken by photographers of international standing, offer visitors some glimpses of the development of industrial production from the 20th century to present day, and with an eye to the future. The photographs are on display in seventeen exhibitions in 10 venues emblems of culture in Bologna, and at MAST, which, with the opening in October, will also offer the city an area for industrial photography with the exhibition Industrial Worlds, curated by Urs Stahel.
