SOW 2020

“Global short -video contest on contemporary work” is an international competition focused on contemporary work developed by the Marco Biagi Foundation within the Phd Course in Work, Research & Innovation of the Marco Biagi University of Modena and Reggio Emilia.

The aim of the course is to promote and collect audiovisual works that focus on the contemporary labour market, in order to create an international audiovisual archive to be used for teaching and research purposes. According to the interdisciplinary approach adopted, the works focus on the labour market and depict in a very peculiar way the important transformations that have occurred in the field in the last decades, outstripping the traditional dichotomy between industrial cinema & social documentary. “Short on Work” gives preference to short videos that – by their nature – represent a new visual approach according to which the audiovisual work is a means of reflection & research and not only a documentary tool .
