The Alternative Clinic is a three-part workshop featuring holistic treatments that opens the museum to unconventional forms of learning and communication, radically relieving the museum of its traditional functions.

Pedro Reyes’s Sanatorium, with its generalized architecture and medical vocabulary, alludes to the clinic as described by Michel Foucault in the theorist’s text The Birth of the Clinic. With the Sanatorium, Reyes inserts the clinic into the gallery to comment on the limited range of acceptable behaviors and understandings that take place in both spaces. The treatments prescribed in the Sanatorium combine traditions not limited to Freudian analysis, German philosophy, Classical theater and Zen Buddhism, in an effort to find commonality among them.
