Lumen Museum is proud to present the Reading Landscape?An experimental collaboration between two local institutions, the Museum of Mountain Photography and Studio Image (Faculty of Design and Art – Free University of Bolzano-Bozen) resulted in this project. The museum’s physical spaces and the university’s mission to impart knowledge go beyond their purpose and limits, expanding their horizons to become fruitful grounds for interaction and dialogue.
The Museum’s proposal to work on Alpine (and other) landscapes was embraced with open arms by Studio Image’s students. They dedicated an entire semester to the topic, exploring the country, gathering stories, questioning their role inside an ecosystem which is heavily affected by the presence of humans. The leitmotif in the project’s works is that people, no longer an external element, have become part of the landscape itself. And so we encounter stories of an industrial mountain; an artificial landscape built within the “mirror room”; and the voices of younger generations beleaguered by rapid climate change. Visitors take part in this complex journey by means of different media and languages, developed by the students after painstaking research and analysis which had them visit locations, stories, and representations of contested spaces.
