Ethics, Psychoanalysis and Postmodern Art in Brazil
The critic Mário Pedrosa defines ‘post-modern art’, in 1967, as a fundamentally ethical stance. Hélio Oiticica and Lygia Clark offer the most incisive reflection on and practice of such ethics of art in which the presence of the other is fundamental, not only as a participant but also as a category that is capable of subverting categories such as I, other and object. This subversion allows art to propose a relation between subject and culture akin to fundamental psychoanalytic concerns of Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan.
