Abstract

Autoritratti is a performative screening. It employs different methodological tools, including dialogue, autobiography, cross-genre and fragmented narratives. The approach is inspired by Italian feminist thinker Carla Lonzi and her book Autoritratto [Self-portrait] (1969), which was her farewell to the art world.
Curated by Laura Leuzzi and Giulia Casalini. With the participation of artists Cinzia Cremona, Catherine Elwes, Tina Keane, Maria Teresa Sartori and Elaine Shemilt. Readings by Diana Georgiou.
