The Collection of the MAST Foundation, the only reference centre in the world for industrial and work-related photography, has over six thousand images and videos by famous artists and masters of the lens, as well as a wide selection of photo albums by unknown authors. In the early 2000s, the Foundation opened a space in Bologna, where it could archive the continuous acquisitions from auction houses, private collections, art galleries, photographers. Curated by Urs Stahel and open for free until 28 August 2022, La collezione MAST Un alfabeto visivo dell’industria, del lavoro e della tecnologia (The MAST Collection A Visual Alphabet of Industry, Work and Technology) is the first exhibition open to the public through which it is possible to admire a part of MAST’s immense holdings.

The exhibition is structured into 53 chapters, each dedicated to a different concept; like an alphabet, the sections range from A for Abandoned and Architecture to W for Waste, Water, Wealth. The itinerary also documents technological progress, from the first cameras to today’s digital devices, hyper-connected to facilitate fast communication. Among the works, snapshots by Gabriele Basilico, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Luigi Ghirri, Sebastião Salgado and other prominent names in international photography, alongside images created by anonymous people, equally powerful and moving.
