MAST - MANUFACTURE OF ARTS, EXPERIMENTATION AND TECHNOLOGY

 MAST MANUFACTURE OF ARTS, EXPERIMENTATION AND TECHNOLOGY

The MAST - MANUFACTURE OF ARTS, EXPERIMENTATION AND TECHNOLOGY is the project designed by one of the most important business realities in Italy, the COESIA - GD Group of Bologna, which through its Foundation intends to promote the development of creativity and entrepreneurship among the young generations to promote the economic and social growth of the territory.

The building that houses it develops into two bodies connected to three floors that welcome the exhibition space for permanent collections and temporary exhibitions and the various services provided by MAST. 

Inside there are exhibition galleries, an auditorium, an academy, a kindergarten, a wellness center, a restaurant and a cafeteria while outside there is a sculpture park with various monumental pieces and important international sculptors such as Olafur Eliasson, Anish Kapoor , Arnaldo Pomodoro, Mark Di Suvero.

Images from the MAST Foundation's Collection

To celebrate the fifth anniversary of the opening of its cultural centre, the MAST Foundation presents a new selection of works from its collection of photographs, video-installations, and photo-albums on industry and labour. 
Over 250 historic and contemporary images by 65 artists from throughout the world – celebrated masters like Robert Doisneau, David Goldblatt, Helen Levitt, and Mario De Biasi as well as younger authors such as Richard Mosse, Ulrich Gebert, and Sonja Braas –show the talent and energy that have driven people to design means and infrastructures for moving goods, people, and data over the last two centuries.
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.
