"MALÙ – The Stereotype of the Black Venus in Italy" is a video-essay screened at the exhibition Nero su Bianco (Black on White) (American Academy in Rome, curated by Lyle Ashton Arris, Peter Benson Miller and Robert Storr). This film examines the construction of the image of the black female body in Italian society, from the colonial age to modern times. The detrimental stereotypes that date back from the XIX century: the European fascination with Saartjie Baartman, the so-called “Hottentot Venus”; the reappearance of photographs of Abyssinian women commissioned by the Istituto Luce; in Italian cinema of the 60s and 70s; in the advertising campaigns of the 80s; more recently, in the media frenzy surrounding Berlusconi and Ruby Rubacuori.
