Abstract

The book collects the works by more than fifty Italian women artists, recounting their way of living the world in different historical and social contexts. Conceived as an open investigation into the present, the project Io dico Io – I say I catches fundamental issues that have crossed and still cross contemporary feminisms: it draws alliances and affinities, weaves likenesses and symbolic relationships, creates intergenerational dialogues leaving chronologies aside.

Artists: Carla Accardi, Pippa Bacca, Elisabetta Benassi, Rossella Biscotti, Irma Blank, Renata Boero, Monica Bonvicini, Benni Bosetto, Chiara Camoni, Ludovica Carbotta, Lisetta Carmi, Monica Carocci, Gea Casolaro, Daniela De Lorenzo, Maria Adele Del Vecchio, Federica Di Carlo, Rä di Martino, Bruna Esposito, Cleo Fariselli, Jacky Fleming, Linda Fregni Nagler, Silvia Giambrone, Laura Grisi, Ketty La Rocca, Beatrice Meoni, Marisa Merz, Sabrina Mezzaqui, Marzia Migliora, Maria Morganti, Liliana Moro, Alek O., Marinella Pirelli, Paola Pivi, Anna Raimondo, Carol Rama, Marta Roberti, Suzanne Santoro, Marinella Senatore, Ivana Spinelli, Alessandra Spranzi, Grazia Toderi, Tatiana Trouvé, Francesca Woodman
