Inserts in Real Time – MAY 2023

Dora García

Inserts in Real Time is the first monograph on the performance work developed by artist Dora García over the past twenty years. The book contains a selection of her never before published performance scripts (including the script “Performance” written by art critic and editor Peio Aguirre); a conversation between the artist and performance curator Joanna Zielińska, responsible for the solo exhibition of Dora García, at M HKA Antwerp, 2023; and, a lexicon of her forty-one performances to date, illustrated, described, and contextualized. In addition, three newly commissioned texts—by art historian Sven Lütticken, performance theorist Bojana Cvejić, and the artist herself—help compose a singular cartography of the relations among performance, politics, psychoanalysis, authorship, and film in García’s work.


The publication accompanies Dora García’s exhibition She Has Many Names, at M HKA, and is co-published by the museum and K. Verlag. Both the exhibition and publication provide unique yet distinct overviews of the artist’s performance-based works and gestures, as well as new political, feminist, and queer readings of various artworks. 

Inserts in Real Time: Performance Work 2000–2023 by Dora García. With contributions by Dora García, Sven Lütticken, Bojana Cvejić, and Joanna Zielińska. Design by Alex Gifreu.
