FILHO, Fernando Silva Teixeira  and  CRUZ, Murilo Galvão Amancio. Reflections for an ethic-aesthetic-political clinical practice through Ernesto Neto's work of art. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.8, n.2, pp. 126-145. ISSN 2236-6407.

This paper proposes a link between contemporary art and clinical psychology inspired by Ernesto Neto's work. Trough feminist and post-structuralist philosophical perspectives, we raise clinical issues to propose an ethical-aesthetic-political practice aiming to interrupt the modes of production of subjectivity, which normalize the existence, and to substitute them for the production of modes of art that stimulate differences and singularizations. Therefore, we follow four pillars of questioning: a) art and clinical practice; b) art and feminist studies; c) art and philosophy; d) art and corporeality. Contemporary art allows the subjects rethink their relationship with the world, opening up possibilities for a daily escape space, in which the subject stop thinking to feel life itself through sensation but not reasoning. So the subject is asked to think by means of feeling, not of representation.

Keywords : Clinic; Contemporary Art; Subjectivity; Sensation; Corporeality.
