A performance of the cinema censorship of female pleasure and sexuality in which Radha May unveils scenes that were removed from publicly viewed cinema in Italy during the 1950’s and 1960’s. With scenes from films such as Brink of Life by Ingmar Bergman and La Notte by Michelangelo Antonioni, Radha May invites female audience members to enact a collective reading of the official justifications that motivated these acts of censorship.

This work is part of Radha May's ongoing project When The Towel Drops, Vol. 1 | Italy
