The OELLE Foundation borrows the concept of social sustainability, which allows the cohesion of a society capable of supporting its members who, by collaborating in order to achieve common goals, are also able to achieve individual well-being.
A paradigm of the social sciences is the concept of equality. The selection proposed today revolves around this concept:
works born from the dialogue with nature and from listening to places. Ever-expanding megacities and ruins to be re-invented. Sequences of images that urge us to re-imagine a possible and not utopian future
