Performing Evidence: Augustine

As the veritable ’star’ of the photographic iconography of hysteria
that was assembled under the direction of Jean-Martin Charcot in the
late 19th century, Augustine has become an icon of a particular
fantasy of femininity. Her photographs have been a source of
inspiration as well as intense critical debate, both then and now.
But Augustine also represents a particular fantasy of scientific
representation, and exposes in an exemplary way how the scientific
apparatus produces the phenomena it claims to merely examine.

Anke Bangma (NL) is a cultural theorist and independent curator
based in Rotterdam. She is currently co-editing a book project around
language, memory and the body (forthcoming 2007) and developing an
exhibition with the working title 'Performing Evidence' for Smart
Project Space in Amsterdam (forthcoming 2008).
