Portable short stories on surviving the blackout

Three events reflecting on some of the environmental emergencies of the contemporary world on the occasion of the exhibition Blackout. Allora&Calzadilla.
Starting out from the works on show, Marco Gisotti, environmental journalist, and Antonio Disi, ENEA researcher, put forward possible solutions and valid models for clean and sustainable energy. Three stories that bring together information and knowledge, artistic energy and technology, stimulating the desire to live in harmony with nature, safeguarding the efficient development of the planet.

Will everything go back to what it was like before or will something change?

At the centre of the first event the work Blackout (2017).
A blackout may be considered as perhaps the only moment in which we all notice an absence of energy and truly realise how essential it is to the technologies that satisfy our needs. But it may also be a moment for reflection on the future…

An event produced in collaboration with ENEA, National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development.
