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.

Never before have Modern and Contemporary Art been so present in the media as today: The changing relationship between art, the art market and museums features regularly in both the art press and modern media. But who actually writes the history of Modern Art ? how long have they been doing so, and for what purpose? The present book pursues these questions. 00In this well-written and readable essay, the author recalls the genesis and transformation of a history of ideas, knowledge and institutions in relation to art, as well as of the conditions for art?s production, distribution and reception. Traditional ideas are questioned, while a new look at the seemingly familiar is offered. Using specific cases and examples of works, Bonnet succeeds in providing an overview of the current internal structure of the art world. In addition to well-known names, such as Gerhard Richter, Marina Abramovic, Damien Hirst and Tino Sehgal, she also discusses many still unknown and younger artists. Nevertheless, the book also intends to show that relevance has nothing to do with market value.
