Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition

Abstract

MAST Foundation presents a new selection of works from its collection of photographs, video-installations, and photo-albums on industry and labour. A multifaceted reflection on the theme of speed characterising today’s society, the exhibition, which has the pendulum as its visual metaphor, illustrates the contrasting energies issued from two phenomena that dominate our present: on the one hand, the unbridled power of engines, an enormous increase in speed, means of transport transformed into the fetish of our times, permanent connection as an absolute necessity; and on the other, a slowing down, a sharp braking, a barrier to the flows of migrating people, the only limit to the myth of global mobility. Curated by Urs Stahel.
