GELMAN CONSTANTIN, Francisco. Assist to the Call of Postdictatorship. Historicity, Performance and Politics of the Body between Emilio García Wehbi and the Periférico de Objetos. An. Inst. Investig. Estét [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.112, pp.9-31. ISSN 0185-1276.

In dialogue with the contemporary theoretical vindication of anachronism as an antidote for positivist historicism, this paper explores Emilio García Wehbi’s performance and theatrical pieces; their relationship with the production of his former group Periférico de Objetos, in order to study the implications of incorporating the scenic body into a complex and fractured conception of art’s temporality.

As “post-dictatorship” becomes established as a retroactive effect of the production of historicity through the split time of the work, desynchronization appears as a political act challenging State biopolitics. The creation of a theory on the relationship between language and the body best suited for this scenic outcome allows us also to address some current notional struggles and to advocate a concept of montage as a way towards understanding how different times, bodies and subjects are articulated, notwithstanding their heterogeneousness.

Palabras llave : Anachronism; historicity; the body; performance; montage; psychoanalysis.
