Ignored for decades by official art-history discourses, Italian Carol Rama (1918-2006) can be considered today to be one of the essential artists for understanding 20th-century production. Through a selection of 120 works--mostly paintings--and essays by Paul B. Preciado, Anne Dressen and Teresa Grandas, in addition to the contributions of a selection of artists, writers and musicians, this clothbound volume proposes an attempt to recognize and restore a life's work--one markedly feminine and sexualized--still unknown but nevertheless slated to become classic.
This publication aims not only to explore the art of Carol Rama, but also to challenge the dominant narratives of art history through work that requires us to undo narratives and reformulate concepts. Almost forgotten by art history and the feminist movement, the work of Rama, stretching over seven decades, constitutes an anti-archive allowing a reconstruction of the avant-garde movements of the 20th century.

Review:

Rama was a real troublemaker, more than a troubled mind. Today, her oeuvre appears visionary. (Anne Dressen Artforum)

Living a solitary, eccentric existence far removed from fashionable movements, Rama (however winner of the Golden Lion at the 2003 Venice Biennale) has produced an astonishing, incendiary, lighthearted body of work that flickers with greatness. (Joseph Nechvatal Hyperallergic)
