Book presentation: La Casa Azul, by Giulia Iacolutti

Giulia Iacolutti, in dialogue with Lina Pallotta, talks about La Casa Azul, a project part of a socio-visual investigation on the life of 5 transexual women inprisoned in a men’s penitentiary in Mexico City.

The project shows these people’s process of identity building and the corporal practices, their bodies being perceived as twice abject, because of their identities and of their isolation.
Forced to wear blue dresses, as all the other prisoners, these ladies call the prison “Casa Azul”, hinting at their constrait in men’s bodies.

The book have been published thanks to a Italian-French coedition between studiofaganel
publishing and TheM éditions.
