Istanbul in/+ Leeds (part 3), 3 & 4 June 2015

Beside Julia Kristeva and Luce Irigaray, Bracha Ettinger has offered a sustained theoretical intervention at the crossroads of feminist studies and psychoanalysis. Her work is, however, inspired by her main practice as an artist. Thus she explores the borderspace between the most archaic of our aesthetic experiences and the disposition to the ethical through a radical proposition of a mode of subjectivity that is not defined by the castration paradigm, the Oedipal Complex and the founding of desire and language on lack and loss.

On 3 and 4 June, Bracha Ettinger will be in Leeds to present her most recent paintings and video work, and to read with us a paper on her most recent theoretical concept CARRIANCE derived from her retranslation of the original Hebrew for the injunction to Cain to 'carry'.

3 June, 6–8pm Making with Bracha Ettinger
4 June, 2–6pm Reading with Bracha Ettinger
