Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The main issue of this dissertation was to promote an analysis between ethics and aesthetics regarding the marginal Becoming of alien subjectivities as a confrontation with heteronormative and patriarchal neoliberalism through independent LGBTQ+ audiovisual production. To this end, I will use a critical basis from fundamental authors to understand deviant subjectivities, such as Simone de Beauvoir and Foucault. Then, I formulated an introduction to psychoanalysis based on Freud and Lacan to analyze the schizoanalysis of Deleuze and Guattari as deterritorialization, in order to achieve marginal independent audiovisual production that seek documental narratives and experiences of free subjectivities. I also used my own background as a queer multidisciplinary artist producing contemporary art projects focused on sexuality and gender. How to overcome moments of incompleteness between narrative, experience and aesthetics? If gender and sexuality are performative manifestations in constant Becoming, shouldn't their representational aesthetics also seek resistance strategies that are alien to neoliberal appropriations, heteronormative restrictions and the normalization of bodies? Based on the relationship between schizoanalysis and LGBTQ+ audiovisual productions, I was able to delineate some of my faults as an artist inserted in a neoliberal production model and, therefore, with neurotic restrictions. Nevertheless, I was able achieved results for future works that escape these limitations. In addition, I have indicated some examples of films, video art and video installations that represent diverse and powerful lines of escape, which cross social taboos or ethical questions.
