Diversity and inclusion as resources for society at the center of Christian Tasso’s shots at the Fabbrica del Vapore. The exhibition is curated by Adelina von Fürstenberg
The Steam Factory opens its doors to a new engaging photographic exhibition: the Sala delle Colonne will host from 5 to 28 May “No one excluded” with the shots made by the artist and director Christian Tasso.Curated by a prestigious name on the international art scene, Adelina von Fürstenberg, and produced by ART for The World, the exhibition revolves around the diversity and inclusion as resources for society.
Through his photographs – large and medium format, exclusively in film developed manually in the dark room – Christian Tasso brings out the stories, situations and aspirations of people with disabilities in various parts of the world.
“Diversity” as a tool for encounter and inclusion
With this specific work, Christian Tasso wanted to be inspired by situations and people in different parts of the world (Italy, Ecuador, Romania, Nepal, Germany, Albania, Cuba, Mongolia, India, Ireland, Switzerland, Kenya, Cambodia, Paraguay and Ethiopia) that embrace “diversity” as an integrated resource in the social context where they live. Presenting to the public excerpts from the lives of people with disability, the exhibition “Nobody excluded” is one tool for meeting and approaching inclusion.
Each image taken by Christian Tasso reflects on personal history of the photographed subject first of all as an individual with his history and personal ambitions: disability thus becomes one element among the many that make up its identity. The photographic series tries to free the observer’s gaze from visions based on disinformation and on today’s controversial ideas regarding people with disabilities. Unlike the extreme photographs of the great American photographer Diane Arbus on the world of diversity, Tasso brings to light the sensitive and human aspect of the subjects he photographs, making us discover their daily life, their work, the pleasure of being with family and the pleasure of life.
