Daniela Comani is interested in “a subtle irritation, which leads to rethinking our social structures.” “What if history were different?” she asks. Comani disrupts the heterosexual, male-dominated narratives of world history, the popular press, literature, and film in her drawings, manipulated photographs, videos, and mixed-media installations. With an approach informed by feminism, she seeks to shake viewers out of complacency by revealing the rampant gender biases, and absence of women’s voices, in the art and information that shapes our worldviews. In an installation at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011, for example, she presented a diary of the 20th century; it encompassed all the major historical events, but was written out of chronological order and in the first person, thereby forcing Comani’s own voice into modern history. Comani has also altered canonical book covers and movie posters by reversing the gender of the featured protagonists.
