The feminist artists’ collective Labios Superiores presents the dramatic work La noche de las alienadas*. In 1790, a group of mentally ill women who have been confined to the psychiatric hospital of La Salpetriere seek to survive when revolutionaries break into the institution. It seems that madness has no place in their revolution, given that the ideal of rationality and political consciousness is out of reach of those who have been labelled as demented.
