Publisher's description: Mad Marginal Cahier #4, the massive 400-page reader on Spanish multidisciplinary artist Dora Garcia, edited by Chantal Pontbriand, brings together major essays by international authors who delve into different threads of Garcia's research. In her recent exhibitions, Exhausted Books (2013) and Mad Marginal Charts (2014), Garcia uses compulsive writing, collective reading, endless or circular books, graphomania and the parallels and intersections between reading and writing to examine the wellsprings of artistic experience, alter the traditional relationships between artist, work and viewer, and question the daily behavior of the individual through performance, film and discussion. Mad Marginal Cahier, in which Garcia creates an abstract mapping of references central to her idea of marginality as an artistic position, marks this new cycle of works. Contributions by Caroline Andrieux, David Dorenbaum, Dora Garcia, Maria C. Havstam, Christa-Maria Lerm Hayes, Vanessa Ohlraun, Britta Peters, Chantal Pontbriand, Kjetil Roed, Margit Säde, Caroline von Taysen and David Tomas.
