The Lacanian Review No 11: “The Art of Singularities”

Release date: July 2021




The Lacanian Review No.
11 explores what can be said about the art of singularities in the experience
of psychoanalysis, the singular in art and writing, and fields of mathematics
that aim at this horizon of the real. Without the effort to circumscribe what
is singular for the speaking being, life ends up as a gray composite of
everyone's favorite color.



Fueled by
globalization, the world is increasingly governed by the category of the
exception. As a result lives appear confined by the law of the statistical norm
and at the same time the lawlessness of individualism. Reduced to medical data,
converted into subjective data, a series of app profiles with checkboxes feeds
algorithms used to market ourselves back to ourselves. The result of the
standardization of subjectivity is a series of endless new categories of
identity, exceptionalism attempting to carve out a vanishing space of the


pushed to its end, can attest to the singularity of a speaking being, something
impossible to quantify or compare with a norm applied for all people—human rights—or some people but not
others—segregation. This concept of
singularity has an absolute dimension in that it cannot be replicated,
translated, or held against a principle of commonality or community.
Identifications drawn from the Other and the buzz-word master signifiers that
are imposed on bodies do not cease to operate; they are a structural fact of
language. Yet with psychoanalysis and other discourses that approach the real,
the irreducible remainders encountered by the speaking body can never be
totally inscribed within the master's discourse. It is not a question of
something unique, but an invention outside of sense, one written not to be
read, but nevertheless spoken.


This volume
of The Lacanian Review (TLR), starting from the orientation to
the real and the singular developed by Jacques Lacan and elaborated by
Jacques-Alain Miller, presents the dossier of presentations delivered at the
January 2021 event of the New Lacanian School, “Pass and Formation of the
Psychoanalyst.” Testimonies of the pass delivered to a School of psychoanalysis
embody one of the arts of singularity. A collection of new texts from 14
authors on 14 visual artists shows other pathways to the singular, one by one.
With a few detours into the littoral, the sinthome, the signature and style, TLR invites the reader to consider what
Lacan proposed as inciting one to pass through the right hole of what is
offered by an analysis as singular.
