A White Night devoted to Psychoanalysis, Video Art and Performances

A White Night devoted to Psychoanalysis, Video Art and Performances

Night standing from Dusk to Dawn (from 5:14 pm to 7:29 am) at la Friche, Cartonnerie

Operating Instructions for Having a Thrilling Night

A crossing. A journey. An experience – not without stopovers. On what might appear to be strange or unknown territory: for some, the writings of Freud and Lacan, for others, video art and performances. A night where no one will have the same experience, and no one will be left aside no matter what. Indeed, there is a story that reminds us of a witty student who once wrote on the black board, just before the teacher came to speak in front of it, “To every Jack his Jill, to Lacan his lacuna”. We are all cut from the same cloth, aren’t we? So let’s just make ourselves available for this nighttime adventure, and for textual, sonorous and visual pleasures – a delight of the senses, that is. Our partners for the night – the École de la Cause freudienne and the New Lacanian School – will in some ways disturb the habits of our festival. Because, when it comes to presenting films, welcoming performers, exhibiting artwork…. we have it all under control. But that is where the danger lies: control! The need to control everything, even the flow of desire, is the malaise of our society. So without thinking twice we’ve opened the floodgates to shake things up. And now about 90 key figures of Marseille’s public, political, cultural, artistic and scientific life have agreed to come and read Freud and Lacan. This is unprecedented. And this is why we love our psychoanalyst friends. They could have invited only specialists of the couch to read these texts. But they chose the gap, the lacuna. What a poetic conscience! You won’t be able to listen to everyone. There will be four different spaces for simultaneous readings: Reflection, Couch, Bedroom, and Field. Desire arises from frustration, as you know. From time to time, and we won’t reveal all the secrets (of desire), there will be whisperings escorting you here or there, but shush… we mustn’t say too much, must we? And thus the night begins… 5.14pm (in the twilight) Chœur Tac-Til (50′ – 2016) / Visually impaired vocal ensemble with multiple voices.

(More informations on the page “Performances…”) The Association de la Cause freudienne – Méditerranée-Alpes-Provence is one of 17 non-profit organizations created by Jacques Lacan in order to represent the École de la Cause freudienne in Belgium and in regions all over France. It promotes the practice and the study of psychoanalysis following the teachings of Jacques Lacan. The École de la Cause freudienne has been declared by the government as serving the public interest since 2006.  https://psychanalyse-map.org/acf-map/ The Clinical Section of Aix-Marseille, part of the Institute of the Freudian Field, coordinated by Jacques-Alain Miller and operating under the auspices of the Department of Psychoanalysis of University Paris 8, aims at keeping the teachings of Freud and Lacan vibrant, renewed and contemporary. Its curriculum, ensured by teachers with a Lacanian orientation and approved by the Continuing Medical Training program, is proposed to clinical practioners including psychiatrists, psychotherapists, psychologists and social workers, as well as to students, and consists of theoretical seminars, clinical case studies, and a clinical presentation of patients in hospital. It is directed by Dr. Hervé Castanet, University Professor of Psychopathology and psychoanalyst. Now in its 22nd year, it has a branch in the town of Gap. https://psychanalyse-map.org/section-clinique-am/ The Psychoanalytic Centers for Consultations and Treatment (CPCT) (Marseille-Aubagne/Gap-Manosque) receive children, adolescents and adults for a short treatment of up to 16 sessions, free of charge. The 28 analysts that volunteer there are psychologists, psychiatrists and psychoanalysts with a Lacanian orientation. Centers throughout much of western Europe – 10 created in France by the École de la Cause freudienne – work in coordination with city hospitals, clinics, psychologists and social workers. Each year at least three public conferences are organized to discuss the issues and challenges encountered in the centers, leading to the publication of several articles and books. Open in Marseille since 2007, it is directed by Dr. Hervé Castanet, University Professor of Psychopathology and psychoanalyst. https://psychanalyse-map.org/cpct/ Contact: 06 78 12 09 51 – cpct-marseille-secretariat@hotmail.fr
