Sophia Giovannitti

author
Johan & Levi
È un’artista concettuale che vive e lavora a New York. Si interessa in particolar modo al fenomeno della mercificazione del corpo e dell’arte, ai meccanismi dietro al riconoscimento del valore degli artisti e all’odierna distorsione della realtà attraverso le immagini e il linguaggio. I suoi video e le sue performance sono stati ospitati nelle gallerie di New York, alla Biennale di Atene e all’ica di Londra. Scrive articoli sul gender e il sesso per varie riviste online. Una donna in carriera è il suo primo libro dove riflette sull’arte e sulla sua vita da sex worker.

Author's books

Una donna in carriera - Vendere arte e vendere sesso
Class of '92, artist and sex worker Sophia Giovannitti tells it like it is. She proudly signs her name both in artistic performances and when meeting clients. She does not hide behind a puritanical sense of guilt: free of prejudice, she does not allow anyone to degrade her for the way she has chosen to live.Inhabiting a world where capitalism has ended up commodifying not only our free time, but also those activities that have always been considered intimate and sacred, namely art and sex, has made it possible for someone to make money from both, creating a short circuit for which, despite fully participating in the system, one is still mercilessly stigmatised. We are all bent to the market logic that controls every aspect of our lives, and yet there are those who have raised their heads, those who, from the margins, exploit this very mechanism to reclaim their space, whether in the gallery or in the bedroom, and remain uncomfortable to the hypocritical and well-considered world. Sophia then continues on her way, the best that allows her to pursue what she loves and also profit from it. In an ironic 'confessional' style, she lays bare her occupations, giving them extreme seriousness and legitimacy. Rough, brash, provocative, capable of quoting The Sopranos and Foucault in a loose and self-conscious manner, Sophia Giovannitti writes a book that is more than contemporary: a necessary reflection on the markets of art, work and sex as they were, as they are and as one dreams they will be tomorrow.
