In the frame of the WASTED exhibition, a special event dealing with the topic of rebellion in connection with feminism.
Jennifer Guerra comes to Udine to present the volume published by B#S Edizioni “Sul sellino posteriore della motocicletta” (“on the back seat of the motorcycle”), including a debate for the participants.
The appointment is set for Friday 27 October at 6 p.m. at the Libreria Friuli, via dei Rizzani 1/3 in Udine.

Free admission, booking recommended at (a maximum of 50 participants will be allowed).

“Sul sellino posteriore della motocicletta” offers a broad overview of a hitherto little-explored topic: the relationship between Pier Paolo Pasolini and the feminist movement of the 1970s.

The debate will be focalized on the intellectual relationship -and, therefore, on the cultural and legal impact of it- between Pasolini and Carla Lonzi (leading figures in cultural history and feminism, true rebels).
Both protagonists of the 20th century, Pasolini and feminism, represented by Carla Lonzi, intertwine a profound but ambiguous and nuanced relationship, destined to play a fundamental role in the redefinition of the female subject in the post-war period. Jennifer Guerra retraces the salient points of this relationship, uncovering the pandora’s boxes of correspondence, letters and newspaper statements.
During the workshop, the author will go through the salient points of her study, framing the phenomenon of feminism in a historical and contemporary key, in dialogue with the guests. Following a debate, in the idea of connecting the historical debate with the contemporary state-of-art, focalizing on the instruments that the law and the society in the UE are put in place in order to work equalizing gender disparity.
