A book curated by conceptual Spanish artist Dora García, 'Mad Marginal: From Basaglia To Brazil' is the achievement of a broader project inspired by the writings of Franco Basaglia, an Italian psychiatrist who promoted the groundbreaking Law 180, making Italy one of the first countries to close down mental hospitals, and a pioneer in alternative mental health care. This tradition of anti-psychiatry were carefully researched by García, and the investigation becomes an opportunity to look at forms of artistic expression that consciously decided to stay at the periphery of the mainstream.
