EXHIBITIONS

USA68

The MAST Foundation, without betraying its mission of exploring the themes of work and industry, presents an exhibition focused on 1968 in the USA, not only to celebrate a key date but also to pay homage to photojournalism in the 1960s.

Through 54 iconic shots by celebrated photo-reporters of the time, the exhibition documents the major events of one of the most significant cultural revolutions ever, on one side to retrace the spirit of the time, on the other to celebrate a glorious photographic genre—photojournalism—on the verge of giving way to the first colour live broadcasts on television.

The year 1968 marked a radical change in public attitudes and beliefs. Photojournalism had a dominating role in the shaping of public attitudes at the time. Photojournalism played a crucial part in triggering this transformation: neither the Beatles nor the Rolling Stones, neither the moon landings nor the Vietnam War, neither Courrèges nor Twiggy, neither sexual nor political liberation, feminism or the Black Panther movement are conceivable without the crisp, high-contrast, black-and-white photographs that appeared in newspapers or without the first colour spreads in magazines. Andy Warhol’s disaster images and his endless rows of portraits of Jacqueline Kennedy and Marilyn Monroe would never have existed without press images. The assassinations of John Kennedy, his brother Robert, and Martin Luther King Jr. were covered in countless reports and photo series by the international press.

TEOREMA
DI PIER PAOLO PASOLINI, ITALIA, 1968, 98’

Provocatorio e profetico, Teorema segna una svolta nell'opera di Pier Paolo Pasolini, con l'approdo a una visione sacrale, vivacemente simbolica della realtà. Realizzato in pieno ‘68, il film sembra echeggiare le vicissitudini sociali, politiche e ideali di quell’anno. Protagonista è una famiglia milanese composta dai genitori, Lucia e Paolo, due figli studenti, Pietro e Odetta, e dalla domestica Emilia. Queste persone conducono l'esistenza di un qualsiasi nucleo borghese fino a quando non vengono messe in crisi da un evento apparentemente innocuo eppure sconvolgente: l'arrivo di un ospite, un personaggio silenzioso e affascinante dai dati anagrafici molto vaghi. All’improvviso i cinque membri della famiglia si ritrovano sedotti dall'ospite misterioso, che insegna loro il valore della libertà e dell’amore. Il rapporto sessuale ed intellettuale con il giovane fa prendere loro coscienza della vanità della propria esistenza borghese. Quando il viaggiatore ripartirà nulla sarà più come prima.

Dibattito sul film con Marco Antonio Bazzocchi e Massimo Recalcati

BARBARELLA
DI ROGER VADIM, FRANCIA-ITALIA, 1967, 97’

Nell'anno 40.000 dopo l'era barbarica della “contestazione globale”, Barbarella sta dirigendosi verso Venere a bordo della sua nave spaziale. Il presidente della Terra le ordina di compiere una missione speciale: rintracciare lo scienziato Durand Durand, scomparso da qualche anno con il segreto del raggio positronico, potente e infernale mezzo di distruzione. Il futuro della Terra, che da millenni ormai vive in pace, è nelle mani di Barbarella. Durante la sua missione la donna incappa nelle avventure più imprevedibili: giunge su un pianeta che è una specie di Sodoma e Gomorra interplanetaria, dominato da un tiranno il quale ha isolato i buoni in un labirinto senza uscita, mentre i cattivi vivono nel peccato e nella perversione della Città Nera, capitale di questo strano pianeta, costruita su un mare di "magmos", sostanza che si nutre di tutti i peccati che vengono consumati in loco. Grazie all'aiuto di un gruppo di rivoluzionari e di un "angelo", Barbarella non solo riesce a rintracciare e a mettere fuori combattimento Durand Durand – un pazzo assetato di potere che intende usare il suo raggio della morte per dominare l'universo – ma anche a far inghiottire la Città Nera dal “magmos”.

IL PIANETA DELLE SCIMMIE
DI FRANKLIN J. SCHAFFNER, USA, 1968, 112’

Tre astronauti americani, dopo un viaggio spaziale che li ha fatti avanzare nel tempo di duemila anni, approdano su di un pianeta popolato da una società barbarica: un impero retto da scimmie evolute, nel quale gli uomini, privi di parola e di intelletto, sono trattati alla stregua di bestie. Uno solo degli astronauti, Taylor, riesce a sopravvivere a una battuta di caccia delle scimmie. Imprigionato, è oggetto di molte attenzioni da parte di due giovani scimmie intellettuali che intendono servirsi di lui per dimostrare che la scimmia discende dall'uomo. Questa teoria evoluzionistica al contrario cozza però con la fanatica opposizione di un vecchio scimmione gran sacerdote, che fa condannare per eresia i due protettori di Taylor. L’astronauta, dopo aver sofferto ogni genere di umiliazioni, riesce a fuggire in una zona inaccessibile alle scimmie, dove fa una scoperta sconvolgente.

LES ANNÉES 68
DI DON KENT, GERMANIA-FRANCIA-NORVEGIA, 2018, 97’

Il regista britannico Don Kent, studente ventenne a Parigi all’epoca dei fatti, rievoca il Maggio ’68 nella capitale francese attraverso un viaggio impressionistico in tutto il mondo, in cui non rinuncia a rendere omaggio ai suoi celebri ex compagni di scuola, mescolando a spezzoni d’archivio rari o inediti le loro immagini più celebri. Senza pretendere di riesaminare un movimento la cui eredità continua a dividere, il regista dà voce a una moltitudine di testimoni scovati in tutto il mondo, dal Brasile al Giappone, dalla California all’Italia. Alcuni sono nomi molto noti – la ex guerrigliera ed ex presidentessa brasiliana Dilma Youssef, i filosofi Régis Debray, Toni Negri e Judith Butler, l’ex Pantera nera Kathleen Cleaver, gli scrittori Hélène Cixous, Erri De Luca, Alain Mabanckou e Viet Thanh Ngueyen, l’ex batterista dei Doors John Densmore –, altri sono meno conosciuti, come le straordinarie attiviste giapponesi, animate da una passione rimasta intatta a distanza di mezzo secolo. Il regista sospinge i suoi interlocutori in direzioni inattese, verso letture laterali e rivelatorie, che passano attraverso le note di Bach inanellate dalla pianista cinese Zhu Xiao Mei, fuggita dalla rivoluzione culturale, lo sconcertante diagramma politico schizzato dal musicista brasiliano Tom Zé o l’amarezza toccante dello scrittore americano David Horowitz, ex gauchiste radicale convertito al neo conservatorismo.

ZABRISKIE POINT
DI MICHELANGELO ANTONIONI, USA, 1970, 110’

A Los Angeles, durante uno scontro tra la polizia e un gruppo di contestatori, viene ucciso un agente. Mark, un giovane ritenuto colpevole dell'omicidio, riesce a fuggire a bordo di un aereo da turismo rubato e atterra a Zabriskie Point, la zona più bassa e desolata del deserto californiano. L'incontro con Daria, una giovane segretaria d'azienda che sta andando in vacanza in Arizona, si traduce ben presto in un’avventura sentimentale. Nel paesaggio spettrale di Zabriskie Point i due giovani trascorrono lunghe ore d'amore; poi giunge il momento di separarsi. Mark fa ritorno a Los Angeles per restituire l'aereo rubato, ma trova ad accoglierlo la polizia che gli spara contro uccidendolo. Daria, che ha appreso per radio la notizia della morte di Mark, nella sua impotente disperazione non può far altro che immaginare la distruzione di tutti i simboli della spietata società nella quale è costretta a vivere.

WHERE TODDLERS TAKE THEIR FIRST STEPS IN SOCIAL LEARNING AND BEGIN TO EXPRESS THEIR IMAGINATION

NIdo

A significant area of MAST has been dedicated to a unique nursery, built to host the very young children of the Coesia Group employees during office hours. The Day-care was opened in 2012 and can host up to 80 children of Coesia Group employees (85%), and the community (15%).
The project was realized in collaboration with "Reggio Children, an International Center for the Defense and Promotion of the Rights and Potential of All Children". Relying on their wide experience developed during the last three decades, Reggio Children have created a methodology – recognized all over the world – focused on the value of team work and of meaningful relationships between children and their families.
A management company was established, and in collaboration with Reggio Children, the Cadiai Cooperative and the Giannino Stoppani Cooperative, it manages the Day-care, the pedagogical approach and relationships with institutions.
From 2013, to meet a local need, a kindergarten section for three-year-old children was also opened.

INNOVATION AT THE NURSERY

The MAST nursery is based on a pedagogical project that offers children a range of educational and cultural stimuli:

The value of beauty
The architectural choices, the colours and the furnishings are inspired by aesthetic criteria and by the most up-to-date pedagogical studies on the perceptions of young children

Technology
A tool of everyday life and modernity, to promote new methods of communication and information exchange between educators and parents

Picture books
Objects of growth that accompany the development of the child's representation and language

Games
Chosen as the product of a fine artistic and craft culture

English through songs
To learn new sounds through music with a mother tongue teacher

The workshops of colour, nature and music
The workshops are places where children, teachers and families can meet, discover and explore. The first is for painting, the second is for experiencing time as change in plants and fruit – also in relation to an outdoor vegetable garden – and the third is for playing and listening to music.
