  • Does your institute have an anti-racism commitment' Interrogating
           anti-racism commitments in psychoanalytic institutes

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, I consider some ways that the psychoanalytic community is waking up to the racism and classism inherent in our field—in our theory, technique, training and practice structures, and institutions—and the ways that we need to begin to grapple with and engage in meaningful, symbolic, systemic and concrete changes in alignment with racial justice and anti-oppression principles. The questions that I ask include: What is anti-racism in the context of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic training structures' What does the typical training milieu look like, and what changes need to be made in order for programming to reflect anti-racism and anti-oppression operating principles' What are some ideas about how best to proceed' I argue that anti-racism is a problematic and deceptive goal in institutions that are historically majority White and that center around race-blind work, and I offer some suggestions about how to bridge the gap between the racial awareness currently unfolding in our communities and anti-racism as a fundamental organizing principle.

  • Reading Lacan as or with phenomenology: Implications for psychosis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Lacanian psychoanalysis and phenomenological psychopathology offer promising alternatives to mainstream approaches to diagnosing and treating psychosis. Yet tentative attempts by one to engage the other typically result in the subsumption of the rival perspective, effectively silencing productive dialogue between the two approaches. This non-dialogue—or “non-relation” in Lacanian terms—has long plagued the phenomenology-psychoanalysis dynamic. To illustrate, I critique Louis Sass’s phenomenological reading of Lacan. Reading Lacanian psychoanalysis as phenomenology evacuates it of the radically social symbolic register and dilutes the critical edge of both approaches—a disservice to the already underserved population experiencing psychosis.

  • Trauma and repair in the museum: an introduction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Despite its considerable investment in questions of memory, attachments between subjects and objects, and trauma and its treatment, psychoanalysis has been largely sidelined in the unfolding reassessment of museums. This introduction to the special issue on ‘Trauma and Repair in the Museum’, which aims to reintroduce psychoanalytic perspectives in these debates, outlines the issues around reparation that surround the modern museum due to the traumatic legacies of coloniality. Timothy P. Brown’s notion of how the trauma of displacement and dissociation effects both objects and communities is key to our consideration of the museum as symptomatic of trauma, as is Cathy Caruth’s reading of history as trauma. Referring to several artists’ practices, such as Lisa Reihana, Erika Tan, and especially Kader Attia’s concept of repair, as well as a number of museological approaches to restitution, we expand on the complexities of ongoing coloniality and its implication with museums as institutions, practices of collection and display, and highly charged psychoactive spaces. Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick’s rereading of Melanie Klein’s notion of reparation allows us to posit a form of decolonial repair that involves the assembling of damaged part-objects into ‘something like a whole [but] not necessarily like any preexisting whole’ (2003, p. 128, original emphasis). This approach enables a reckoning with trauma and its legacies that keeps them visible without ruling out processes of reparation. We follow our outline of trauma and repair in the museum with summaries of our contributors’ articles, which expose and unpack the mutual implication of collections, institutions and displays with patriarchy, colonialism and racial capitalism through the critical discourse of contestation, while also acknowledging the potential of museums to overcome their traumatic origins.

  • ‘Museums on prescription’: Reparative logic and the ethical dilemma of
           curating ambivalence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This article provides an analysis of the prescription of museum visits as a form of preventative and remedial health care within Rx: Community, a 2018–2019 pilot project for social prescription based in Ontario, Canada. I turn to Melanie Klein’s psychoanalytic framework to position ‘museums-on-prescription’ as a redemptive strategy of museology’s foundational paranoid and manic reparative logic. By situating this within the representational specificity of the Canadian context, this article ultimately critiques the museum’s prescribability as a defence against the museum’s inherent ambivalence – how its purported goodness is inextricable from its historical and ongoing role as a settler colonial nation-building institution.

  • Scandal in the museum: a symptomatic response

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The controversy surrounding Luke Willis Thompson’s film autoportrait (2017) raised important questions regarding the role art events and museums such as the Turner Prize and Tate Britain play in representing traumatic images. My concern in this article is with how French art historian Georges Didi-Huberman’s theorisation of the symptom might help us think about representing traumatic images in museums. First, a symptomatic reading of autoportrait is apposite to representing trauma as it sidesteps a binary oscillation between mimetic and anti-mimetic curatorial approaches that have historically structured traumatic representation in the museum. Second, a symptomatic approach is sympathetic to a theorisation of the ongoing effects of racial and postcolonial trauma as it eludes the single event model that has formed a cornerstone in trauma theory since the 1990s.

  • Reading hieroglyphs behind glass: A glimpse of reparative feminism in
           Riddles of the Sphinx (1977)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article examines Laura Mulvey and Peter Wollen’s 1977 avant-garde essay film Riddles of the Sphinx as a cinematic text that makes the museum a site for imagining psychoanalytic feminism as a reparative reading practice. I argue that the film questions gender and race as “musealized” images that make predetermined essences present, and offers instead images of working through the damages of sexism and racism that erode the familiar poles of idealization and denigration. Focused on the psychic life of a middle-class white woman as she begins extricating herself from the narrow confines that white patriarchal culture has allotted her, Riddles revises the visual logics of castration, which opens the possibility that white women can, instead of defending themselves against shame, respond to the forms of sexism and racism that write Black women’s lives.

  • Populism: symptom or sublimation' Reassessing the use of
           psychoanalytic metaphors

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In the effort to articulate political theory and psychoanalysis, two psychoanalytic metaphors—symptom and sublimation—have been separately used by political theorists to explain the emergence of populism and its relationship with democracy. Going back to the works of Freud and Lacan, this paper provides a critical reassessment of the uses of these two psychoanalytic metaphors by authors such as Ernesto Laclau, Chantal Mouffe, and Benjamin Arditi. The paper concludes that the two metaphors are complementary, as the distinction between symptom and sublimation is key to differentiating between undemocratic and radical democratic constructions of popular identities.

      Abstract: Abstract This practice-based paper reflects on my quilt commissioned for the Beyond the Binary project at the Pitt Rivers Museum. The quilt pieces together fragments from the Pitt Rivers collection and the personal archive of Fisch, aka King Frankie Sinatra, Drag King and Rebel Dyke. Through an autoethnographic narrative, threaded through with queer and feminist psychoanalytic theories, this paper reflects on the reparative qualities of the quilt, and its potentiality as a site for affective resonances and transformative possibilities in the aftermath of historical lesbian trauma.

  • Psychoanalysis and radical philistinism in the museum

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article proposes a psychoanalytic reading of ‘radical philistinism’ in museum contexts. Radical philistinism in the museum is defined as the proposition that curatorship can continue while civilisation falls and cultivation fails. The participation of museums in a cultural game that produces contingent bodily trauma in dominated groups, is contrasted with examples in which a psychoanalysis of the museum allows for a focus on curatorial acts that bring about a worsening or deterioration of the games of culture and civilisation in which the museum is enmeshed.

  • Of trauma and happiness: Orhan Pamuk’s The Museum of Innocence

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper offers an interpretation of Orhan Pamuk’s novel The Museum of Innocence (2008), and also the actual museum by that name curated by Pamuk in Istanbul. The museum differs fundamentally from any “real” museum in that it is a collection of objects memorializing the relationship between two fictional characters in Pamuk’s novel, and in particular one fictional individual—Füsun, the love of the fictional curator’s life. By relinquishing any claim to objectivity and embodying pure affect through actual objects of quotidian use, the museum conveys the traumatic experience of a fictional personal history. The museum embodies metafiction, using verisimilitude to make a cathartic impact. My analysis seeks to understand how this verisimilitude of the eponymous Museum of Innocence in Istanbul produces a cathartic rather than a neurotic effect on the fictional curator as well as on potential audiences.

Una reflexión sobre los conceptos psicoanalíticos en la exposición del fenómeno de la violencia en un museo” (Violence, a self-portrait: The place denied by man. A reflection on psychoanalytic concepts in displaying violence in a museum), which was held at the Museo Casa de la Memoria Museum (Medellín, Colombia) between 2017 and 2018. The project’s primary objective was to reinterpret the main exhibit of the museum Medellín, Memorias de Violencia y Resistencia (Medellín, Memories of Violence and Resistance) using psychoanalytic theory and the concept of death drive to underpinning this reinterpretation.

  • The lost and the found: Stories for the afterlife (of objects)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract In 2004 Liverpool-based artist Tabitha Moses undertook a residency at Bolton Museum and Art Gallery in Greater Manchester. Responding to the small mummy of a young girl in the museum’s Egyptology collection, Moses created The Dolls, a series of nine carefully wrapped and bound dolls that she had previously found in charity shops. She placed the dolls in the museum display cases alongside the Egyptian artefacts already in residence ‘for the [mummified] girl to take with her to the afterlife’. This museum intervention, titled The Lost and The Found, is analysed as uncanny in the Jentschian sense, for dolls are anxiety provoking; they are neither dead nor alive, yet both dead and alive simultaneously. X-ray images of the dolls, where the pins with which Moses had held the swaddling fabric in place are visible, are considered here within the context of Hito Steyerl’s identification of object forensics as a practice whereby ‘the bruises of things are deciphered, and then subjected to interpretation’. Conceptual links are made between the dolls as x-rayed images and the bodily fragility of the original mummified girl whose desiccated remains have undergone forensic investigation by Egyptology specialists in their quest for heuristic interpretation. The Dolls as a museum intervention tells multiple stories; the dolls have become witnesses to their former lives as little girls’ toys, and of their journey from desired object to disposal and reclamation by Moses. As objects for the afterlife of the mummified Egyptian girl Moses’ artwork prompts questions as to the identity of the girl, of how she died, and of how she ultimately came to rest in Bolton.

      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, the author reflects on his family’s trauma, a trauma he began to grapple with after seeing photos of refugees disembarking from overcrowded boats on the island of Lesvos. The photos of these people stepping on the same shore as his father’s family almost one hundred years ago evoked reactions that lead him to reflect on what was known but never thought nor discussed in his life.

  • Freudian slips reloaded: From psychodynamics to cultural analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Freud introduced the concept of parapraxis to demonstrate that the benefits of psychoanalytical theory and methodology extend beyond clinical practice. Despite various paradigmatic shifts in psychoanalysis, this concept has not been significantly discussed. After a brief recapitulation of the basic principles of parapraxis, the article reflects on the possible cultural functions of parapraxes. First, we discuss a possible societal benefit of parapraxis as a form of mental hygiene that helps an individual to remain healthy in spite of pathogenic social imperatives. We then explore whether engagement with parapraxes for the purpose of self-analysis can offer a biographically relevant learning opportunity beyond psychotherapy. Subsequently, we show that the relevance of psychoanalytical parapraxis theory extends as far as the major pillars of the psychoanalytical concept of the subject and try to demonstrate that mistakes could take on a prominent position within the inter-theoretical discourse of subjectivization.
