Psychoanalysis and the Image: Subjectivity, Sexual Difference, and Aesthetics

by

Psychoanalysis and the Image: Subjectivity, Sexual Difference, and Aesthetics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Psychoanalysis and the Image brings together an influential team of international scholars to use psychoanalytical resources in the study of international modern art and visual representation. Beginning with a substantial introduction by the editor, the volume covers a range of psychoanalytic concepts, including melancholia, trauma, sexuality, the dream, and femininity.

Fresh, creative, and passionate about its subjects, Psychoanalysis and the Image advances methodological debates in theoretically enriched histories of art while offering closely read visual analyses of significant works of international twentieth-century art. It teaches theory in practice while enabling general readers to learn about psychoanalysis through their interest in the visual arts.

Book News Annotation:

Seven essays present close readings of specific texts--some painted, some written, some filmed, some installed, and some imagined--that explore psychoanalysis as it can be read through image-work, and image-work that can be deciphered through psychoanalytic concepts. Their topics include the image in psychoanalysis and the archaeological metaphor, Yayoi Kusama between abstraction and pathology, and Chantal Akerman's News from Home.
