I was invited by Jeanne Wolff-Bernstein to hold a lecture about art and identity; the lecture will happen at the Viennese Psychoanalytic Society (“Wiener Psychoanalytische Vereinigung”), the world*s oldest psychoanalytic society — the one founded by Sigmund Freund, with prominent members being Alfred Adler, Wilhelm Reich, Carl Jung etc.
I’ll talk about depicting individuals that “arent’t us”: about the transgressions this inherently includes, about trying to paint what we cannot understand. About the self-portrait aspect that’s part of painting anyone else.
The lecture happens on September 22nd 2021, 8:15pm at Wiener Psychoanalytische Vereinigung, Salzgries 16/3 (1010 Wien). Here’s the link to the event.
