EventNot a story to pass on

Not a story to pass on


A panel discussion around feminism and gender issues, with a focus on censorship that historically women artists and feminists claims have been subjected to, as in the recent #bananagate occurred at National Museum in Warsaw, involving the video Consumer Art made by Natalia LL on 1973. To talk about it: Elvira Vannini, who has been developing an ongoing reflection on artistic practices looking at feminist discourses throughout history through the online platform HOTPOTATOES; Paola Ugolini, who has been active in curating feminists exhibition projects; Romina De Novellis, who has been building a collective counter-narrative on women “Tarantate” with her residency project DOMUS; and Cesare Viel, presently protagonist of a solo show at PAC in Milan, who investigates in his practice processes to construct and deconstruct identity. Because, as the sorely missed Toni Morrison wrote in her masterpiece Beloved “it was not a story to pass on”, this is a story the cannot be transmitted intact, neither obliterated, ignored, or forgotten.

Speakers: Romina De Novellis (artist and co-founder, DOMUS, artist residency), Paola Ugolini (indipendent curator), Elvira Vannini  (founder, magazine Hot Potatoes and professor NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano), Cesare Viel (artist)

Language: Italian
