This book documents research undertaken by Dora García for a video project on Oscar Masotta, pioneer of Lacanian psychoanalysis in Latin America and influential art critic, which has yielded five films. It presents a selection of Masotta’s writings, including his early study of Argentine author Roberto Arlt, as well as texts that contextualise Masotta’s thought and broaden the reach of his reflections on the intersections between performance and psychoanalysis, art, and politics. García is a contemporary Spanish artist whose work features interactivity and performance, and she often uses the exhibition space as a platform to investigate the relationship between artwork, audience, and place.
