MAY #16


May no.16 focuses on recent feminist debates actualizing the history of Italian feminist collectives of the 1970s and 1980s. The issue is a continuation of the issue 4 of May, which reprinted and translated a selection of texts from the time. The issue’s touchstone is the work of writer and co-founder of Rivolta Femminile, Carla Lonzi. Throughout her life, Lonzi refused the power of a masculine creativity that exploits the reproductive, supportive activity of women. The texts assembled in May no.16 bring that refusal to contemporary light.

About MAY Revue:

Conceived as a collective space in which to develop thoughts and confront positions on artistic production, May magazine examines, quaterly, contemporary art practice and theory in direct engagement with the issues, contexts and strategies that construct these two fields. An approach that could be summed up as critique at work – or as critique actively performed in text and art forms alike.

Featuring essays, interviews, art works and reviews by artists, writers and diverse practitioners of the arts, the magazine also intends to address the economy of the production of knowledge – the starting point of this reflection being the space of indistinction between information and advertisement typical of our time. This implies a dialogue with forms of critique produced in other fields.
