A Report Based on the 9th Culture & Psychoanalysis Seminar Hold by the NYFLAG - New York Freud Lacan Analytic Group, on Kenneth Goldsmith 'Thaw! The Last Word in Stolentelling! »
Culture & Psychoanalysis is an ongoing series of seminars devoted to contemporary art and culture from the perspective of Lacanian psychoanalysis. The program began in August 2011 with a seminar devoted to the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the MET. The presentations take place several times a year, responding to current political and cultural events. Artists, writers, filmmakers, and psychoanalysts are invited to present their work as a means to further develop psychoanalytic theory in the hypermodern era. Jacques Lacan proposed that the artist always precedes the analyst, in his “knowledge” of the unconscious.
