They call it 'blue gold'. Around the world, demand for water is exploding. By 2050, at least one in four will live in a country suffering from water shortages - creating ideal conditions for a new market - Banks, investment funds and hedge funds are all rushing to invest billions of euros in anything related to water. A real monopoly has begun. The financialization of water is a battle taking place on many fronts: ideological, political, environmental, and of course, economic.
Inspired by its Anatolian Weights and Measures Collection, Pera Museum presents a contemporary video installation titled For All the Time, for All the Sad Stones at the gallery that hosts the Collection. The installation by the artist Nicola Lorini takes its starting point from recent events, in particular the calculation of the hypothetical mass of the Internet and the weight lost by the model of the kilogram and its consequent redefinition, and traces a non-linear voyage through the Collection.
