SECOND SECTION – THE VISUAL COMMUNICATION

This part illustrates Fabrica’s main line of work: visual communication. Graphics, photography and videos are the tools it places at the service of its partners, including many institutions and NGOs. The exhibition then presents two global communication campaigns: Violence (2003) for the World Health Organisation and Food for Life (2003) for the World Food Programme and a selection of self-portraits produced by Fabrica’s young artists.

VISUAL COMMUNICATION (1994-2007)

An image gallery of Fabrica pictures for non-profit organisations such as the World Health Organisation, Amnesty International, Reporters Without Borders, Lawyers’ Committee for Human Rights, Witness, the FAO (the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organisation) and the UNHCR (the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees). Posters for cultural projects, books, musical events, and films co-produced by Fabrica (such as No Man’s Land, Oscar winner for Best Foreign Film); pictures and campaigns for Fabrica-organised exhibitions; posters for topical events (such as Visions of Hope regarding September 11) or global issues (drugs, AIDS, diversity, soccer and religion). The Wanted Creativity collection of illustrations and personal projects.

VIOLENCE (2003)
Gabriele Riva (Italy)
A communication campaign for WHO (the World Health Organisation) dealing with the most difficult kinds of violence to report and fight: marital violence, self-inflicted injuries, sexual violence, group violence, child abuse, ill-treatment of old people, child abandonment. Launched in May 2003, the campaign was publicised around the world and translated into many different languages to raise awareness about means of getting help and taking preventive measures.

FOOD FOR LIFE (2003)
James Mollison (United Kingdom)
A United Colors of Benetton advertising campaign developed in co-operation with the UN’s World Food Programme. The pictures, taken in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Guinea and Sierra Leone, illustrate the correlation between malnutrition and social problems (education, jobs, peace, female emancipation). The distribution of food in schools was particularly effective in ensuring children could receive an education. Fabrica has produced United Colors of Benetton’s communication campaigns since 2000.

SELFPORTRAITS (1995-2007)
Fabrica, various creators
A selection of self-portraits made by the young people at Fabrica. A way of showing Fabrica’s origins and its present reality through the eyes of those who have been part of the communication centre’s life.
