Session is slightly edited transcription of Analysis, a performance by Nicolás Guagnini and David Joselit that took place September 28, 2019 between 7 and 7:50 pm at Bortolami Gallery, New York. Analysis coincided with the artist’s exhibition Asociación Psicoanalítica Argentina. Session has been annotated, via footnotes, with intimate and often humorous reflections by Joselit in the role of psychoanalyst.
As with most A.R.T. Press publications, the book foregrounds the conversation form – in this case, by playfully adopting the format of a psychoanalytical session, confounding and challenging the role of artist and analysand, art critic and analyst.
