THE MAN AND THE MACHINE Call for Exhibition

International Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. November 2020

Since the first complex and automated technological inventions (starting from the experimental science of the sixteenth century up to the current electronic and digital machines) the relationship between man and machine has characterized every evolutionary development of civilization.

Each new invention indelibly marks not only the course of technical development, but also the same vision of the world of man. A distinctive sign in the man-machine relationship is precisely the determined will of the individual and his mental structure to accept the instant modification of his habits by virtue of a new technological discovery. Today the dependence on intelligent machines is made manifest in every field concerning human activity. Especially since the 19th century, art has represented an important cultural field through which we may reflect on the relationship between man and machine, starting from the futurist experiences in the pictorial field, passing through the film productions of Fritz Lang with Metropolis and Ridley Scott with Blade Runner, up to the contemporary images of Thomas Struth in the photographic field.

This call invites photographers to propose photos capable of offering a vision of the current historical and social context and responding to the theme of the relationship between man and machine.
