Against House Arrest

(p.1) Chapter One Against House Arrest
The Heretical Archive
Domietta Torlasco
University of Minnesota Press

By reading Sophie Calle’s mix-media installation Appointment and Bonvicini’s video installation Destroyed She Said, chapter one (“Against House Arrest”) questions the patrilineal logic of the psychoanalytic archive that Derrida ultimately reaffirms. The chapter ends by claiming these artworks as realizations of a psychoanalytic archive that takes Antigone rather than Oedipus as its point of departure.
