Book Signing and Discussion with Angela Marzullo at LACE in Los Angeles
Angela Marzullo, Swiss video artist, will be signing her 2016 book, Homeschooling, edited, designed, and published by NERO on 18 September 2016 at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions) in Los Angeles. Prior to the book signing, Homescooling – the video – will be screened at Echo Park Film Center this Saturday 10 September at 8pm. Marzullo will be in attendance.
Homeschooling, the video, is at the center of the performance and video work by Angela Marzullo, which analyzes critical texts from the ’60s and ’70s, and recreates them involving the artist’s two daughters as protagonists. In book form, the publication presents a decade of production by Marzullo, highlighting the evocative value and content of images and text. The book includes two essays by Anna Cestelli Guidi and Francesco Ventrella. Marzullo will also screen excerpts from the video and discuss this ten year collaborative project with her daughters.
Homeschooling is an elaboration – from an artistic perspective – of issues related to feminism and to its development in the twentieth century, issues that remain relevant to contemporary cultural debate. With its large evocative images, and texts and dialogues presented in lyrical/literary form, Homeschooling associates twentieth-century feminist thought and criticism with the personal experience of the artist, as well as with new feminist approaches in contemporary art.
This publication was first presented on 24th January 2016 as an accompanying event to the exhibition Parallel Development, curated by Noah Stolz at Kustmuseum Lucerne, in which Marzullo’s work was exhibited. In February, the book was presented at the Rome headquarters of the Swiss Institute.

Angela Marzullo links video and performance art to explore the feminist questions that are central to her artistic practice. Homeschooling analyzes critical texts from the ’60s and ’70s, and recreates them involving the artist’s two young daughters as protagonists. The Homeschooling series has enabled Marzullo to address a wide audience, both in Switzerland and beyond. She continues to pursue this collaborative work with her daughters, together with other approaches: live performance, video performance and photography.
