The Potential History of Francesc Tosquelles, Catalonia and Fear

Sunday, Jun 23, 2024 at 5:30 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

With filmmaker Mireia Sallarès, exhibition co-curator Joana Masó, and sociologist Eric Fassin in person

Dir. Mireia Sallarès. 2021, 135 mins. A multifaceted, experimental, and speculative portrait of Francesc Tosquelles, the politicized psychiatrist who worked with the precarious and unexpected, using film and the arts in his practice. By exploring how this major figure of institutional psychotherapy revolutionized our relationship to mental illness and how this accomplishment was disregarded in history, the film opens a critical space about Catalonia and the world’s failure to remember Tosquelles and his interventions. New York premiere
