Now we have seen. Women and Art in 1970s Italy
The event represents the final stage of the eponymous project launched by the Bibliotheca Hertziana, Max Planck Institute of Art History in Rome in 2022 and concluded with the publication of a collective volume of the same name dedicated to the relationship between art and feminism in 1970s Italy.

The project and event title, drawn 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 passive to active voice and agency. The topic of female emancipation in the 1970s is here 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.
