COLLEZIONE DONATA PIZZI: WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHERS FROM ITALY
Five decades of photography, as seen from a female perspective: under the title RESISTANCE & SENSIBILITY, the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt presents 150 works by more than 60 Italian women photographers from 1965 to the present day. The selection from the “Collezione Donata Pizzi” shows various facets of everyday life, social and contemporary history. A main focus is on women’s lives: hopes and illusions, relationships, struggles and going beyond borders are some of the aspects addressed. Rarities in the exhibition include a vintage photograph of women in a political terrorist group and early pictures of transvestites, with a publication that was censored immediately at the time.
