This encounter between Dora García and Esther Ferrer was organised in relation to the artist's book "Mad Marginal", published by Rosascape. Dora García asks Esther Ferrer about her artistic parcours and her political and artistic positions from the Franco years to the present, as well as her position as 'artist in exile' — or more precisely, as a'displaced' Spanish artist who relocated to France in the 1960s. Esther Ferrer also speaks of her personal connections with certain figures of the 1970s intellectual avant-garde such as David Cooper, and with French theorists such as Michel Foucault and Jacques Lacan. Another aspect of the encounter: reflecting on how — as artists representing Spain at the Venice Biennale (in 1999 for Esther Ferrer and in 2011 for Dora García) — the relationship to the State and its institutional and political modes of functioning might be negotiated.
