Manuela De Leonardis discusses The Blood of Women. Traces of Red on White Cloth, a traveling exhibition and book (supported by the Pasquale Battista Foundation) which brings together the work of 68 international artists. The exhibition explores transnational feminisms presenting work about the taboo of menstruation. Antique menstrual cloths are used as the basis for the work of each artist providing new clues for reflection about different aspects of the feminine including birth, puberty, motherhood, sexuality, menopause and violence. Personal narratives, memories and stories— some private, some ordinary, some extraordinary—are brought forward in this work.
