Tosquelles: thinking with the feet

Debate

Free with pre-booking

The artists Angela Melitopoulos and Perejaume, accompanied by the editor Sandra Alvarez de Toledo, follow the trail of Francest Tosquelles today in a conversation moderated by the co-curator of the exhibition, Carles Guerra.

The legacy of the psychiatrist from Reus Francesc Tosquelles has surprised us all. His trajectory represents the most extreme experience of the 20th century, whether in the war, in the internment camp or in the asylum. But Tosquelles is also the irrefutable proof of the potential that human relationships can deploy in order to overcome catastrophe. It has taken a lot of research to recover his memory. But now it is necessary to think about it in terms of the present. That is why nothing is better than following in his footsteps, literally making the feet think, as proposed by the psychiatrist in his hypocritical method. In this conversation we talk about Tosquelles from the contemporary point of view of the artists Angela Melitopoulos and Perejaume, and Sandra Alvarez de Toledo, editor of Ferdinand Deligny, all three participants in the exhibition, and their co-curator Carles Guerra.
