Memory Graphisches

Above, Göttweig Abbey (near Krems an der Donau) looks down Wachau valley. Here, in 1739, Paul Troger has painted the famous fresco in which the Roman Emperor Charles VI is represented as Apollo.

TfA ≠ TsA, TfA ≠ TfB
A ≠ B

The Underside of America

More than a plain cultural critic, the American writer Mark Dery might well be labeled a sub-cultural critic, such is the range of subterranean topics he dives into: fringe religions, trash movies, eudaemonists (and demonists)... Uncanny subjects drawing on the "unconscious" of America, the psychic object officially inaugurated in 1909 by Sigmund Freud, after his visit to the freak amusement parks of Coney Island.

Fear of Self

Is it better to live as a monster or to die as a good man? (Teddy Daniels/Andrew Laeddis in Shutter Island, 2010). "And what if the therapist thus misreads blessed ignorance as unbearable suffering?" (Descartes and the Post-Traumatic Subject, by Slavoj Zizek)
