Carla Cerati (1926-2016) is generally remembered for her contribution, along with photographer Gianni Berengo Gardin, to the book Morire di classe (1969) on the shocking enquiry into the condition of Italian mental institutions. By looking in particular at her photographs of Italian society produced in the 1960s and 1970s, this seminar will explore how, as a female artist, mother and wife, Carla Cerati’s art emanates from the domestic and the private and moves outdoor to interpret the world around her.
