On the occasion of the 59th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia presents a re-edition of the catalogue of the exhibition Materializzazione del linguaggio, in an anastatic copy.
The book, edited by Mirella Bentivoglio, was published in 1978 and examined the eponymous exhibition organized in the spaces of the Magazzini del Sale from September 20th to October 15th, as part of the Biennale Arte 1978.
The first pages of the catalogue introduce the exhibition in the words of Mirella Bentivoglio. Faithful to the structure of the catalogue published in 1978, the book continues with detailed descriptions illustrating the research and experimentations of the women artists in the exhibit. A rich collection of photographs and detailed biographies convey the complexity and evolution of the relationship between woman and language, with works that explore “language and image” and “language and object”.
In conclusion, three short critical essays bring into focus certain key concepts of the exhibition and analyse the history of literary production and gesture by women and the relationship between women and the alphabet.
