The thirteenth edition of the Buon Vivere Festival opens with a day focused on the opening of the great Civilization photographic exhibition at the San Domenico Museums, and with many events between the Cittadella del Buon Vivere and the branch offices of the Festival. At 9.30 the Civilization photographic exhibition officially opens at the San Domenico Museums, and from 11 at the Church of San Giacomo opens “Civilization. A tale of glances”, a series of three panels in relation to the great photographers who describe their planetary work made of light and shadow. Participants Andreia Alves De Oliveira, Olivo Barbieri, Ludovica Bastianini, Olaf Otto Becker, Nicola Bertasi, Michele Borzoni, Olivier Christinat, Lois Conner, Christoph Gielen, Sean Hemmerle, Christian Lünig, David Moore, Michael Najjar, Andreas Tschersich, Carlo Valsecchi, Reginald Van De Velde, Massimo Vitali, Patrick Weidmann, Thomas Weinberger, Luca Zanier and Francesco Zizola.

The first panel is entitled “Civilization and photography: An overview” and will be moderated by the curator of the exhibition, William Ewing. The second panel, “The work of photographers: Challenges and answers”, is scheduled for 3 pm and will be moderated by Holly Roussell, curator of the exhibition, while the third and last panel, “What awaits us? Photography lives up to its own task? “, is for 5 pm and will be moderated by the director of the Chamber, Walter Guadagnini. Luke Kemp (Cser – Center for the Study of Existential Risk – Cambridge University) introduces and contextualizes the panels. “Civilization” is also the title of the show which, at 9.30 pm at the Cittadella del Buon Vivere, intends to present the exhibition through words, dance and images. Starring the performer Lidia Carew, the set designer Annelisa Zaccheria and the musician and composer Stefano Guzzetti. Three hundred images of over 130 photographers and photographers from five continents: this is the basis that constitutes the exhibition “Civilization”, a project that addresses issues of the present and the future of the contemporary world, increasingly characterized by the phenomena of interconnection and globalization . And it will be interesting to see how the three stars involved in the show will render the themes of the exhibition through their art.

After being exhibited in Seoul, Beijing, Auckland, Melbourne and Marseille, Civilization arrives in Forlì in its richest and most complete form, confirming the role of cultural production pole that the city has carved out for itself in recent years in the prestigious circuit of the most important photographic exhibitions. Co-produced by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography (Minneapolis / New York / Paris / Lausanne) and by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea in Seoul, in collaboration with the Cassa dei Risparmi Foundation of Forlì, the exhibition promotes a profound reflection on fundamental contemporary themes, starting from the sometimes extraordinary and sometimes dramatic effects of the relationships between individuals, communities, generations and cultures of our time. Part of the cultural program of the Festival del Buon Vivere, Civilization is an unmissable event for the world of photography, in which national and international photographers present images dedicated to the great technological achievements, to human interventions on the environment, to the great phenomena of aggregation and to the physical and immaterial movements that characterize the world in which we live.

“The implicit theme of Civilization – say those responsible for coordinating the Forlì edition Guadagnini, Fantini and Lazzari – is that of relationships between human beings and the inevitable consequences that every individual and collective choice is destined to have in a context in which individuals live in an increasingly interdependent and interconnected way. For this reason, Civilization represents in a paradigmatic way the desire to use the universal and powerful language of photography as a precious tool for the reflection that the Buon Vivere festival proposes on the themes of relationship as a central element for planning of the society of the present and of the future “. The exhibition is divided into eight sections dedicated to as many themes, which allow for an exhaustive and transversal overview of contemporaneity and which in the formulation proposed in Forlì is enriched with an unprecedented focus, which makes the exhibition unique and completes its analysis with a thrust that sees the best names in national contemporary photography as protagonists. Alongside pivotal exponents of international photography such as Edward Burtynsky, Candida Höfer, Richard Mosse, Alec Soth, Larry Sultan, Thomas Struth, Penelope Umbrico and others, the notable presence of Italian authors – such as Olivo Barbieri, Michele Borzoni, Gabriele Galimberti, Walter Niedermayr, Carlo Valsecchi, Massimo Vitali, Luca Zanier, Francesco Zizola – a sign of the progressive growth of our photography reputation.
