The volume documents the path of the artist of Bolognese origin Anna Valeria Borsari (Bazzano, 1943), from her beginnings in the early seventies - far from traditional artistic channels - to today: the essays and the iconographic selection highlight the thematic complexity of her work, the relativity of perception, the concepts of identity and collectivity, art as a relational tool, while also analyzing the different expressive mediums used, from photography to painting and installation, from video to actions.
Each documented work has the value of a testimony in which Borsari allows the viewer to glance at a fragment of his own personal existence, which is transformed into a representation of a collective feeling.
