This book recounts the eleven editions of SHE DEVIL, female video exhibition created and promoted by STUDIO STEFANIA MISCETTI. SHE DEVIL was initiated in 2006 thanks to an idea of Stefania Miscetti, and involves artists and curators, both Italian and international, from emerging young talents to highly acclaimed personalities. The various works and different critical perspectives coexist within a discourse of many voices, in which the multiplicity of feminine worlds and visions emerges.

SHE DEVIL is the name of a heroine in the Marvel Comics universe, Shanna the She Devil, and title of the famous film from 1989 by Susan Seidelman. The name alludes in a playful way to the diabolical and bizarre spirit with which artistic experience investigates day-to-day life. The videos focus on a female research and place the various fields of investigation in direct contrast to one another. The purpose of the initiative is to stress – at times using irony, at times realism – the collective consciousness on themes such as female identity, the body as repository of representation and meaning, and personal experiences on universal dimensions, even when the very intimacy of the artists is at the forefront of their works.
