Production, post-production, pause and products – the theme of the second edition of Foto/Industria Biennal is focussed on the world of work in all its aspects and in particular on the industrial production chain from conception to recycling. The event's Artistic Director is François Hébel who has been in this position at the famous photo festival Rencontres d’Arles from 2001 until 2014.
David LaChapelle, David Lynch, Edward Burtynsky and many others: The artists chosen for the exhibitions on show are some of the most talented names in the photographic world, although vastly different in style: some are widely renowned photographers, others are reporters, portraitists, corporate photographers and young professionals, but all with a common characteristic – their compelling, unexpected and strongly significant methods and perspectives.
The works will be on show in new exhibition spaces in the city centre: historic palaces, Baroque chapels, and museums, all close enough to be visited on foot with the opportunity of seeing permanent collections while visiting the Foto/Industria Biennal exhibitions.
An extensive program of events will provide opportunities to meet photographers and exhibition curators. According to François Hébel: “The Bologna Foto/Industria Biennal hopes to expand the domain of industrial photography for a far greater public and to help develop the quality of our glimpse”.
