A renowned art critic of the 1960s, Carla Lonzi abandoned the art world in 1970 to found Rivolta Femminile, a pioneering feminist collective in Italy. Rather than separating the art world luminary from the activist, however, this book looks at the two together. It demonstrates that even as Lonzi refused art, she articulated how feminist spaces and communities drew strength from creativity. The authors document the artistic and feminist circles of postwar Italy, a time characterised both by radical protest and avant-garde aesthetics, using primary and archival sources never before translated into English. They map Lonzi's deep connections to the influential Italian Arte Povera movement, and explore her complicated relationship with female artists of the time, such as Carla Accardi and Suzanne Santoro. Carla Lonzi's written work and activism represents a crucial, but previously overlooked, feminist intervention in traditional art history from beyond the Anglo-American canon. This book is a timely and urgent addition to our understanding of radical politics, separatist feminism and art criticism in the post-war period.

Nomadic Subjects argues for a new kind of philosophical thinking, one that would include the insights of feminism and abandon the hegemonic mode that is conventionally adopted in high theory. Braidotti's personal, surprising, and lively prose insists on an integration of feminism in mainstream discourse. The essays explore problems that are central to current feminist debates including Western epistemology's relation to the "woman question," feminism and biomedical ethics, European feminism, and how American feminists might relate to European movements.

Debates about the cultural impact of digital, virtual and cybernetic technologies continue to rage, particularly across the arts where the impact of digital technology on forms such as photography and film have made it a matter of peculiar urgency. This is a formidable new collection which brings together truly stellar international commentators, thinkers, filmmakers and artists in dialogue with those at the forefront of thinking in the fields of informatics and communication studies. Moving beyond the use of existing theory to understand the impact of this brave new world and mindful, crucially, of the ethical and political questions posed by it, here are radical re-evaluations of the work of thinkers such as Foucault, Heidegger and C.S.Peirce. Here too are urgently needed critiques of claims made for new technologies; the everyday use of computers and our ignorance of the code "beneath the machine," and the effects of digitality on forms--such as photography and documentary--frequently considered to retain a unique relationship to reality and to the index.

This book is the first dedicated volume of academic analysis on the monumental work of Elena Ferrante, Italy’s most well-known contemporary writer. The Works of Elena Ferrante: Reconfiguring the Margins brings together the most exciting and innovative research on Ferrante’s treatment of the intricacies of women’s lives, relationships, struggles, and dilemmas to explore feminist theory in literature; questions of gender in twentieth-century Italy; and the psychological and material elements of marriage, motherhood, and divorce. Including an interview from Ann Goldstein, this volume goes beyond “Ferrante fever” to reveal the complexity and richness of a remarkable oeuvre.

The 25-year period beginning with the Allied occupation of Italy in 1943 and ending with the social upheavals of 1968 witnessed a renaissance of artistic development that touched virtually every part of Italy's culture, with painters like Lucio Fontana challenging painting's two-dimensionality and traditional subject-matter. In the United States, artistic preeminence in the postwar period is generally accorded to Americans; this volume, which includes 20 essays and over 600 color reproductions, demonstrates that in terms of invention and influence Italian artists played a varied and important role during this period.

On April 14, 1986, Simone de Beauvoir died in Paris. She was the “prettiest Existentialist”, who during her long and intense life had observed, described, analytically deconstructed and effectively changed the world that surrounded her, “one word at a time”. An engaged intellectual like her life partner and comrade Jean-Paul Sartre, she took actively part in most of the main social and political struggles of the 20th century, including, first and foremost, women’s emancipation and self-determination, as well as the decolonisation of French Algeria, and the denouncement of American imperialism in Vietnam and the marginalisation of elderly people in contemporary societies. This collection of essays, arising from the 18th International Conference of the Simone de Beauvoir Society held in Cagliari, Italy, in June 2010, provides a major contribution to the field of Beauvoirian studies with up-to-date research provided by scholars from a variety of disciplines that range from French literature to gender studies, from philosophy to social sciences, offering a multifaceted overview on the “state of the art” of research on the life and the works of Simone de Beauvoir, 30 years after her demise.

This publication searches for the place of Czech, Slovak, and Eastern European postwar art in global history.Its aim is not to fruitlessly compare Eastern and Western neo-avant-gardes and contemporary art practices, but to decipher the circumstances under which artworks are created, theorized, and how they communicate with one another.Artists active in former Czechoslovakia (Kn�z�k, Kol�r, Koller, Kovanda) are considered in relationship to Situationists, Minimalists, and Fluxus artists. Inter-generational connections are also drawn with Czech contemporary artists (Kot�tkov�, Mancuska, Sed�).Establishing significant links through contrast and association, this collection of nine essays, spanning 1939 to 2013, proposes a new reading of the visual arts during the Iron Curtain Era and after. The volume is introduced by British art historian and art history professor Sven Spieker, founding editor of ARTMargins Print, a journal devoted to contemporary art practice in the global margins.Tom�s Pospiszyl (b. 1967) is a Czech critic, curator, and art historian. He has published extensively on 20th- and 21st-century art, and coedited, with Laura Hoptman, Primary Documents: A Sourcebook for Eastern and Central European Art Since the 1950s (MIT Press, 2002). He teaches at the Film and Television School of the Academy of Performing Arts and the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague.Published with tranzit.cz, a curatorial and editorial structure focusing on Central and Eastern European artists and theory.Part of the JRP Ringier Documents Series.
