Now we have seen. Women and Art in the Seventies in Italy
A thematic and methodological comparison between the participants and with the public preparatory to the publication of the homonymous collective volume, scheduled for spring 2024, dedicated to the relationship between art and feminism in 1970s Italy.

This workshop is part of the homonymous research project supported by the Italian Council (2022), Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity, Italian Ministry of Culture. The title, inspired from a phrase in the Manifesto di Rivolta Femminile (1970) – “we have been looking for 4000 years: now we have seen!” – investigates the rising awareness of women artists and their need for a change of pace, as declared through the visual verbs “to look” and “to see”, which represent a shift from the passive to the active. The topic of female emancipation in the 1970s is addressed in its privileged connection to the visual arts through the enunciation of several macro-topics leading to a critical and historical analysis of the tools and paradigms of emancipation itself.
