This is a special season of PIPA Podcast about “Art and psychoanalysis”.
After two seasons talking about different themes of contemporary arts, the PIPA Prize launches a special season with psychoanalysts, artists and psychiatrists about the intersections between arts and clinics. How do these two areas intertwine? How does art help us to think about subjectivity issues?
Our last episode of the season is with the curator of PIPA Institute, Luiz Camillo Osorio, and with Carles Guerra, a Catalan art critic, professor and researcher who signed the curatorship of “Francesc Tosquelles: Like a Sewing Machine in a Wheat field” that is opened until August at the Center of Contemporary art in Barcelona, Spain. Guerra is also the writer of the book “La Déconniatrie: Art, exil et psychiatrie autour de François Tosquelles” (2021).
The exhibition revisits Tosquelles work, an important Catalan psychiatrist. He was the doctor at the psychiatric hospital of Saint-Alban, in France, and is known as one of the creators of institutional psychotherapy, an influential movement in mental health in the last century.
