How aware are we of our own addiction to imagery? How much does contemporary visual culture influences our way of looking at the world, and therefore our way of living? For some time we have discussed societies of control and their scope for defining what we eat, what we watch, what we wear, how we move, and even how we think, but are we sure we recognize the tools they use to do so? What role do agriculture and nutrition play in all this?
Through the gaze of the artist Cosimo Veneziano and in dialogue with voices from a wide range of disciplinary contexts, Biomega sketches a potential map of the debate around themes of unquestionable current interest.
