Copi was many things. Among them, he was known as Raúl Damonte Taborda, and was an Argentine novelist, dramaturge, actor, director, and cartoonist, who called Paris home. His life and times present a story marked by his own marginality, but also by his simultaneous protagonism in multiple and diverse social, political, and artistic environments. The following study looks critically at how to approach such a past and uses Copi’s own view of subjectivity as a historical model that embraces the confusion, contradiction, and chaos that characterized his life. Remembering Copi in this way proposes that the memory of marginal subjectivity be addressed and narrated from the margins of dominant epistemologies and independently from the clarity and cohesion associated with traditional historiography.
