Suely Rolnik is a cultural critic, curator, psychoanalyst and professor at the Universidade Católica de São Paulo, where she conducts a transdisciplinary doctoral program on contemporary subjectivity. She is co-author with Félix Guattari of Molecular Revolution in Brazil, to be released in English translation by Semiotext next year and Micropolitics: Cartographies of Desire (1986). Most recently Rolnik curated “Lygia Clark. From work to event. We are the mould, it’s up to you to breathe substance into it’, a touring exhibition and catalogue on Clark’s later work. Refusing to simply re-display art works, the exhibition was composed of 63 video interviews with Clark’s friends, acquaintances, students and colleagues about the implications of her experimental, collective projects like the ‘Nostalgia of the Body’ workshops of the early 1970s and the individual therapeutic ‘Structuration of the Self’ sessions she undertook on her return to Rio in 1976.
