Show or exhibition
Ball, R. 2015. Obsolete Studios (event) : Format Photography Festival 2015.
FORMAT13 centres on the theme of FACTORY and mass production. This can be understood literally and creatively in terms of process and the transformation of material, live site of production, the products, workers, analogue process, and documentary.
Derby, the city where FORMAT is based, holds a significant World Heritage Status as the birthplace of mass production and the world’s first factory. This world affecting phenomenon of mechanised production on mass was one of the factors responsible for timed working life, urbanization, mass production on all scales and the creation of industrial economies. It also sparked the movement towards socialism, unions, futurism and constructivism during the industrial revolution.
The festival theme focuses on several aspects of factory and working life such as automation, live to work/work to live, the products and impacts of factories, communicated through exhibitions, performances and related programmes encompassing an eclectic array of genres, concerns and aesthetics
