75 Reasons to Live: Stephen Hartman on Felix Gonzalez-Torres’s “Untitled” (Golden)

Stephen Hartman is a psychoanalyst. He's talking here about Felix Gonzalez-Torres's "Untitled" (Golden) (1995); contradiction; shame and ecstasy; and neutrality and disclosure in psychoanalysis.

Remember the end of Manhattan, when Woody Allen asks himself what makes life worth living? In January 2010, during SFMOMA's three-day 75th anniversary celebration, 75 people from the Bay Area creative community gave extremely short talks — 7.5 minutes or less! — on a single collection work of their choosing. Someone called it "manic splendor" — and it was. You can view all of the talks on The Anniversary Show exhibition page. Or look for them here, on Open Space.
