WOMAN'S WORLD - The world through women’s eyes

Informacittà - L’arte di comunicare

From October 22nd to November 14th

Vernissage Friday October 22nd at 5 p.m.

The festival “L'Eredità delle Donne” (Women’s heritage) with the artistic direction of Serena Dandini gives the occasion for this exhibition where “Informacittà – L'arte di comunicare” gets a pink coating thanks to the works of art of some of the most interesting female Italian street artists.

Informacittà, the well-known cultural information agency, is hosting a new women collective exhibition getting together artworks of some of the most influential Italian to tell the world with woman’s eyes through their colours.

A world that keeps evolving and in which we talk about rights, rebirth, growth. A world from which a lot of women take inspiration for their artistic epiphany and their social public outcry.

Among these artists are Laika, famous street artist and activist from Rome – for the first time in Florence. Ale Senso an artist always caring about social themes. LeDiesis with their Madonna of Kabul and the “SuperBlack”, a series of graphic artworks realized during the long lockdown to exorcise Coronavirus fear. Feminine collective Darehood from Padova, spacing from graffiti to stencil and paste up art, focused on “girlpower” and women rights. Footoose_Footloose with her denounce to violence against women. Young Giújuba with her drawings telling about the social discomfort of our times.

As Domna, we are so pleased to announce this important women artist show and its connection with the REGENERART project for many reasons, the main being that all the artists involved are with their art often or always committed in raising social themes and especially those of women rights and the fight against gender-based violence and violence against women.

Moreover, the following four have collaborated with our Association and Fondazione Pangea last year by offering their works of art for a benefit auction called “Art’s Angels” to raise funds to help women victims during 2020 Italian lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic.

Some of their artworks previous or for “Woman’s World” are notably linked to our common project and we so invite you to get a special look on them, with open souls.

Women's human rights in the spotlight of film

Since 2001, TERRE DES FEMMES has organized the annual film festival FrauenWelten (Women's Worlds), which focuses on the human rights situation of women worldwide. Since 2020, the festival, originally founded in Tübingen, has been held in Berlin, where the federal office of TERRE DES FEMMES is located. In more than 30 current short films, feature films and documentaries from more than 20 countries, women's rights in different cultures take center stage and open up new perspectives on the relevant topics to the approximately 4,000 viewers.

Every year, numerous filmmakers, human rights activists and TERRE DES FEMMES experts are invited for audience discussions after the screenings and discussion rounds. In this way, the topic of "women's human rights" is further anchored in international filmmaking. In contrast to other women's film festivals that exclusively show films by female filmmakers, FrauenWelten, as a thematic festival on human rights for women, offers a canvas for films by women and men. The festival is complemented by a supporting program with discussions, exhibitions, workshops.

Renowned filmmakers and people involved in human rights and women's rights work have been invited as guests, such as Nobel Peace Prize winner Leymah Gbowee from Liberia, Nobel Prize nominated lawyer and President of the Supreme Court in Ethiopia Meaza Ashenafi, Iranian directors Samira Makhmalbaf and Mohsen Makhmalbaf and actress Nina Hoss.
