The show

Hicham Benohud created the La Salle de Classe project between 1994 and 2000, when he worked as an art teacher in a school in Marrakech, Morocco. The protagonists are his students. The classroom is transformed into an improvised photographic studio where the models are asked to play the role of themselves, giving rise to an unprecedented composition halfway between sociological exploration and puppet theatre. In constituting a portrait of the future of an entire society and an open glimpse into the dreams and mysteries of its members, Benohoud's images are also the reflection of a simple and elementary game, such as simply standing in front of a camera.

With GAME, in 2023 the biennial Foto/Industria is dedicated to the theme of play. The photography of industry and work, at the basis of each edition of Foto/Industria, explores this year the production of objects and devices that fall within the part of a sector of great breadth and solidity, capable of renewing itself over time to meet changes in taste and habits and always extremely receptive to technological innovation. From children's games to amusement parks, from role-playing games to video games, the gaming sector has taken on unprecedented proportions, incorporating issues of extraordinary relevance and relevance.

The twelve Foto/Industria exhibitions - eleven personal and one collective - constitute as many opportunities to delve deeper, through the gaze and research of international artists, into some specific elements of the relationship between gaming and industry, investigating their implications and repercussions in the fields of psychology , architecture, economy, history, ecology, politics, up to the deepest impulses of the human soul. Play is at the center of a journey that guides visitors to discover the many facets of an activity practiced by every woman and every man, at every age and in any place, accompanying them through the labyrinth of an authentic wonderland that is not only worth looking at, but inevitably concerns us.
