 Interview by Silvia Gaetti about my research on Protest books around the world

Artphilein Dossier 4 – Against Power and Privileges: Women’s Voices


The fourth Dossier introduces a new research approach that involves comparing Artphilein Library photobooks with another collection of books: Protest in Photobook, a platform curated by Luciano Zuccaccia, dedicated to protests worldwide as seen through the photobooks in his private collection.This dialogue between collections of photographic books touches upon two different areas: the public sphere of street protests and the private domain of the female body and intimacy, where women express their claims. These protests are captured through the lenses of female photographers.The volumes selected from the Protest in Photobook collection bear witness to protests from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries around the world, with particular attention to the 1960s and 1970s, Latin American and Italian publishing, but not limited to them. They include protests from the Arab Spring, Kurdistan, Angola, India, to name but a few.In response, Artphilein Library’s selection focuses on publications predominantly created after the year 2000, in which women articulate their demands through their bodies: a liberated, young or mature body that transcends censorship and gender stereotypes.
