Donne (non più) anonime
Conversation on femicide
Curated by Daniela Trincia
GET TOGETHER FOR ONE YEAR
Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 6:00pm
AlbumArte – via Flaminia 122, Rome
TOPIC OF THE MEETING
We recognized the difficulty, which still exists, in accepting even the sole use of terminology and verbalization of gender violence on women with the femicide neologism, On January 25, we will explore how violence is structured and how art expresses and it is expressed on it.
Speakers (the talk will be held in Italian):
Teresa Dattilo – Psychotherapist: How violence can be structured into the couple
Rosa Jijón – Artist: Women’s Letters (Cartas de Mujeres), unique stories. Writing as a form of political participation
Alessandra Sannella – Sociologist: Violence over tradition and digital society
The persistent, ferocious succession of violence on women denotes a very urgent and essential need to talk more and more about this phenomenon with growing commitment, because violence is among us and anyone could be or become a victim.
During the first two appointments with Donne (non più) anonime at AlbumArte, on November 24th and 26th 2016, it became clear how important it is to give continuity to the conversation and discussion in a broader and more inclusive way, with the specific aim of generating a widespread awareness and a cultural breach. Because, unfortunately, femicide is primarily a cultural issue, and only by working on culture it can be eliminated.
With the purpose of bringing forward the process started, we want to explore some of the topics and gather the ideas emerged during the first two appointments, always with the aid and experience of professionals working in the field that will deliver their knowledge, as well as the testimony of those who found themselves involved with one of the many forms of femicide.
Therefore, let’s get together for a year.
