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. It is noteworthy that when referring to the “mother”, s/he is written as m/Other, referring to the mother as well as the big Other to which we all relate constantly. 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.
