My main objective in curating this review and choosing the artists was, and is, to show the similarities and differences in the artistic approaches and methods of several video artists whose work I've been following for some time. Many themes are similar, because life is basically similar for all. But I'd like you to appreciate the diversity of women's video and art: all the artists I'm introducing work in other media too, and I invite you to discover their works and websites.
I chose three Italians and three international (USA, Slovenia/Austria) artists. I'm introducing them as I see them and their work, talking as a fellow woman and artist (sometimes curator). Together, they represent several facets of the complexity we live in: that's why I write what I see in each one of them instead of telling something more generic about all: not as a theorist, but as an artist introducing fellow artists, fellow women.
Carla Della Beffa is a video, photo and relational artist and curator.
