MARCOS LUTYENS: MEMOIRS OF A HYPNOTIST: 100 DAYS. Ed. by Kari Cwynar. Sternberg Press, Berlin, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 172 pp. 17 x 10 cm. ISBN 9783956791840 In English.
Publisher's description: In 2008, when gallerist Jessica Silverman asked Paris-based writer/curator Raimundas Malasauskas to curate a show at her San Francisco gallery, she did not expect him to propose an exhibition that takes place in the mind of the audience through hypnosis. When Malasauskas found Marcos Lutyens, an artist deeply immersed in neuroscience, eco-dreams and artificial intelligence, he found his accomplice. Together they produced The Hypnotic Show, which in 2012 with Lutyens as hypnotist, arrived in Kassel for dOCUMENTA (13) for a 100-day performance that included 340 hypnotic sessions with his audience. In this fascinating and playful book, Memoirs of a Hypnotist: 100 Days, Malasauskas introduces and Lutyens chronicles the event, assembling all kinds of improbable experiences: research of cognition and neurological activity, deep exploration of varying states of consciousness and, at the center, the possibility for contingency and embodied dematerialization within the current thinking of art.
