The Bettencourt Schueller Foundation has invited Ramy Fischler to create the scenography for the exhibit “Pour l’intelligence de la main,” curated by Alain Lardet. This scenography is incorporated within the framework of the international exhibition dedicated to European artistic professions, “Homo faber, crafting a more human future,” organized by the Michelangelo Foundation at the Giorgio Cini Foundation in Venice.

Ramy Fischler has proposed an itinerary that is both physical and virtual, questioning the relationship between arts and crafts and modernity. Ramy Fischler imagined a scenography in two phases: a physical discovery of the works and a virtual immersion within artisans’ workshops. This installation, composed of walls made out of earthen bricks created by the Amàco workshop, is an artisanal achievement. It promotes the development of eco-friendly practices and showcases the future of artistic professions in the technological era.
