Throughout history, many artists have created works that intersect with political activism and social justice causes not only to generate awareness and affect positive change around social issues, but also to interrupt and alter oppressive systemic patterns.

This exhibition explores a selection of works by Italian artists who, in the period between the late 1950s and the 1970s, have effectively used different media to engage in the mass struggles affecting the country. Grounded in the spirit of resistance and denouncement, these artists have embodied an urgent yearning for radical change. Social justice issues, by nature interrelated, interdependent and indivisible, are here displayed according to different artistic media. The selected artists are often working with different media and actively engaging with different issues, such as gender and equality, labor rights, acknowledgement of the class struggle, economic disparity, animal rights, and education reform.
