Pau Guinart

I was born in l'Escala, a little fisherman's village an hour from of Barcelona, close to the French border. When I was 23 I traveled my country with a donkey and wrote a book about it. Since then I've tried to spend my life traveling and writing, but in between I studied Philosophy, History, Greek Tragedy and Cinema. I published three books about my travel experiences and one on the relation between archaeology and nationalism. I've lived in England, New York and LA and worked for the New York Film Academy and the Sundance Institute. My dissertation project focuses on the relation between Salvador Dalí and Friedrich Nietzsche, both as a Nietzschean reading of Dalí's life as well as Dalí's personal understanding of the German philosopher, which led him to state in 1975 that he had become the "absolute overman". I divide my dissertation in three conceptual categories: accumulation, affirmation and generation, respectively using the readings of Nietzsche produced by Alexander Nehamas, Gilles Deleuze and Peter Sloterdijk, and I mainly study Dalí's written work.
