RENDERING UNCONSCIOUS PODCAST
This episode of Rendering Unconscious features a rendition of a talk given by Dr. Vanessa Sinclair at NGBK Berlin as part of the exhibition “Father Figures are Hard to Find” entitled CUTTING UP THE IMAGE OF THE FATHER/ RECONSTRUCTING THE THIRD.

Along these lines, “another” is spelled an/other and refers to the other with a small o. For those of you familiar with Lacanian theory this other refers to the others that we identify with or put in the place of the object of our desire.
The track playing at the end of the episode is “Page 6.2” by Vanessa Sinclair & Carl Abrahamsson and is part of the recently released compilation album COVEN available from highbrow-lowlife.com Film & artwork by Vanessa Sinclair.

Guests include: Irish Lacanian psychoanalyst Dr. Ray O’Neill discussing the work of Salvador Dali, Musician and multi-instrumentalist Sharron Kraus with Art as Alchemy, Psychologist Dr. Meredith Friedson on the treatment of depression and psychosis and the state of mental health care today, Artist & Art Therapist Melissa Diaz, and Psychoanalyst Dr. Steven Reisner on the Dance of the Occult and Unconscious in Freud.
