Female Icons / Performing Evidence: AUGUSTINE
As the veritable ’star’ of the photographic iconography of hysteria that was assembled under the direction of Jean-Martin Charcot in the late 19th century, Augustine has become an icon of a particular fantasy of femininity. Her photographs have been a source of inspiration as well as intense critical debate, both then and now. But Augustine also represents a particular fantasy of scientific representation, and exposes in an exemplary way how the scientific apparatus produces the phenomena it claims to merely examine.
