A well-deserved survey for the internationally acclaimed Argentinian film and video artist Sebastián Díaz Morales. Covering 15 years of work (1998–2013), Ficcionario is a kind of autopoetic sum of his prolific career re-created through film stills, texts and reports by participants. Exhibited and collected by institutions such as the Tate Modern and the Centre Pompidou and a Guggenheim Fellow (2009), Morales has participated in major film and video festivals and art biennials worldwide. His particular view of reality—a fusion of poetic and realistic narrative style—represents the Latin American literature of magical realism as well as the docu-fictional style of South American cinema. Writings and drawings drifting through the artist’s film stills give the book an almost diaristic feel. Contributions by noted American video artist Gary Hill, Indonesian video artist Hafiz Rancajale, independent curator Dick Verdult and political South African photographer Jo Ratcliff among others.
