Artist as Analyst

Fall 2022

Taught By: Isaiah Madison

Section: A

CRN: 14723

Credits: 4

This course begins to work through psychoanalysis, desire and relation in art and performance. From the Surrealist preoccupation with the unconscious and dreams, to the deep influence of psychoanalysis on film theory and feminist art, to the politically oriented performances of artists such as Adrian Piper, Andrea Fraser, and Fred Wilson, we will trace how psychoanalytic methods and concepts have moved through artistic production. The course also explores how artists, alongside movement workers and clinicians, have sought to collectivize and experiment with psychoanalytic tools in the intersecting contexts of liberationmovements, radical pedagogy, and art. We will give special attention to this uptake of clinical and healing practices in the arts, with a focus on racial and sexual difference as central factors in psychic life. Our course material spans foundational and contemporary psychoanalytic texts, alongside critical thought in black studies, gender and sexuality studies, and art history. Students will complete a series of collaborative reading and writing assignments.
