 Developed alongside García’s exhibition She Has Many Names earlier this year at MHKA, Antwerp, this remarkable book is the first monograph dedicated to the performance work of the artist Dora García. At its heart is a Chronology of all her performances and gestures from the past twenty years—listed, illustrated, described, and contextualized. This unique overview is framed by new political, feminist, and queer readings of various artworks offered by art historian Sven Lütticken, performance theorist Bojana Cvejić, and García herself, as well as a new conversation between the artist and curator Joanna Zielińska. In addition to a series of film stills from García's latest film Amor Rojo (2023), the Appendix of Selected Scripts makes this archive an especially vivid relay of her decades of public experimentation, provocation, and activation.

Dora García is an artist and teacher who lives and works in Oslo. She is currently professor at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Norway. Her work is largely performative and deals with issues related to community and individuality in contemporary society, exploring the political potential of marginal positions.
