Item description for Moreno Gentili: Europe Terminal by Angela Vettese, Giovanna Calvenzi, Gabriel Bauret & Moreno Gentili...
How has the Old Continent evolved in scientific terms at the beginning of the third millennium? European Terminal is a project by artist Moreno Gentili on the concept of technology and the human countenance. Space, food, weapons, biological sciences, nuclear energy, medicine, chemistry, pharmaceutical, environment, human resources, computing, and more make up this photographic work started in 1992. This anti-romantic project is the artist's vision of two parallel worlds. In one, Western wealth increases and the chaos and values which represent the concept of development and consumption in our time emerge. In the other, technology poisons mankind. Through more than 200 images, we get a glance at that utopia hidden in the heart of the old continent, which, according to Gentili, has sold its soul to increasingly sophisticated and evolved machines. Essays by Gabriel Bauret, Giovanna Calvenzi, and Angela Vettese. Paperback, 7.75 x 7.75 in./368 pgs / 116 color and 113 b&w.
