We firmly believe in the educational and pedagogical role of museums, archives and cultural institutions, and we act like them: much more than establishing canons, shaping the tools to build the fundamental bricks of a functional society, engaging in dialogue and discussions.
We also firmly believe that real advancement in knowledge can be achieved only through a transdisciplinary practice, crossing the borders of our respective niches and gaining awareness that being out of our visual scope doesn’t mean to don’t exists.

And we love to share our insights in different forms, online and offline, through talks, lectures, and individual or group courses.

A brief introduction to the photographic for hard scientists and not creative mindsets.

HOW PHOTOGRAPHY
WILL SAVE THE WORLD

A still ongoing transdisciplinary research project in the form of a reasoned and narrated bibliography made by uncommon and rare contemporary photographic publications and artist’s books.

A multimedia experience to understand how we look at the world, from which point of view we do it and how useful it can be to learn to acquire new perspectives. 

To understand how, between the objectivity of the world and the subjectivity of our gaze, relying only on our eyes too often leads us to overestimate the small differences and does not make us see the enormity of what we share as human beings.

In the first chapter, we are going to have a look at how the act of seeing works. Exploring how a photograph, that decontextualized fragment of space and time, may potentially bring many meanings and carry very different messages depending on who, when and where the observer looks at it. Meanwhile, we’ll see how the same subject can be seen in divergent ways.

In the second chapter, we will focus on the concept of “Wall” – starting from the rise and fall of the Berlin’s Wall – as a metaphor for the structure that divides us and our destiny, may it be a political border as well as the personal, conceptual barriers that restrict our visual field and mental openness.
Paying a lot of attention to new technological devices and the algorithms that drive them.

The third chapter will analyze more in-depth those considerations after more than a couple of years of the covid pandemic, affecting the whole of our lives.
An in-depth study on housing and prison conditions, on the labour in transformation and the lack of it, on the economic ruins that this crisis will bring.
On the social and political void that surrounded our existence.
Finally, a large section is dedicated to video surveillance and new technologies for social control. 

How do we see through machines, how do machines see us?

The fourth chapter will propose a new-new encyclopedic approach, questioning how to define a new system to catalogue, index and share acknowledgement, skills and information more actual and useful for the days to come.
