Description

VOGUE OPENING NIGHT FILM

Dr Frank Ochberg is a New York-based psychiatrist and trauma specialist. His specialism is post-traumatic stress disorder. Cuban artist Tania Bruguera consults him after serving an eight months sentence. A dissident, she was accused of treason for a performance she was developing that was critical of the government. During her conversations with her therapist she analyses the revolutionary potential of art and how the short-term, spontaneous and transitory nature of performance art represents a means to criticise the Cuban government. Hershman Leeson?s work often addresses the relationship between identity construction and technology, as well as questions of surveillance, civil rights, and censorship.
