Energy and Chronopolitical Allegory

Lecture, 22 Feb 2022, 19:30

Around the mid-nineteenth century, what had hitherto been described as a multiplicity of physical forces, was unified under the novel concept of energy. Working in tandem with, and under the aegis of, the transition to fossil fuel consumption, this reduction of multiple forces to one single unifying concept also entailed the suggestion that turning the compressed time of fossil deposits into the accelerated time of propulsion engines was not simply an economic but a moral imperative.

Class Struggle in the Psychoanalytic Consulting Room

Lecture, 1 Mar 2022, 20:00

Focusing on examples by British psychoanalysts, including Marion Milner and Christopher Bollas, this talk will attempt to construct an alternative to existing analyses of the encounter between Marxism and psychoanalysis that focus on abstract theories by grounding itself instead in socially and economically contextualised accounts of clinical practice.

Part of the lecture series Psychoanalytische Kulturwissenschaft

The lecture series is a cooperation of the Berlin Institute for Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (BiPP), the Cultural Science Institute of the Humboldt University Berlin, the International Psychoanalytic University (IPU), and the ICI Berlin, organized by Wilhelm Brüggen (BIPP), Monika Englisch (BIPP) and Andreas Gehrlach (HU Berlin), funded by the Friedrich Stiftung Hannover

Reenactment Strategies in Contemporary Arts and Theory

ed. by Cristina Baldacci, Clio Nicastro, and Arianna Sforzini

Cultural Inquiry, 21

Berlin: ICI Berlin Press, 2022

Open Access

Over the last twenty years, reenactment has been appropriated by both contemporary artistic production and art-theoretical discourse, becoming a distinctive strategy to engage with history and memory. As a critical act of repetition, which is never neutral in reactualizing the past, it has established unconventional modes of historicization and narration.
