Curated by Dr. Marquard Smith
Solitary Pleasures
Sigmund Freud famously described masturbation as the first or ‘primal’ addiction. Solitary Pleasures interrogates and investigates masturbation, and the eroticism, desire, and gratification associated with it, not just as an isolated or solitary ‘vice’, but as a pleasure that’s mutual; shared between couples, lovers, and strangers in ways that redefine desire and eroticism´s possibilities.

The exhibition includes work by Shannon Bell, VALIE EXPORT, Chantal Faust, Antony Gormley, Jordan McKenzie, Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens, Emma Talbot, and Michelle Williams Gamaker. Together, they tell the human story, both ancient and modern, of our complex sexual, erotic, and intimate encounters with ourselves and others by way of masturbation as an all-inclusive - gay, lesbian, heterosexual, bisexual, trans, queer, + - practice.

Solitary Pleasures challenges social taboos and contributes to the arts, sex education, and sexual health and wellbeing agenda by generating original, wide-ranging dialogues on this topic central to gender, sexuality, eroticism and mental health.

Raul Moncayo and Dany Nobus
This talk will consider the history of psychoanalytic organizations and the Lacanian school as an organization, beginning with a review of Lacan’s trajectory in attempting to develop a new psychoanalytic organization consistent with the discourse of the analyst. Lacan was interested in alternative organizations in which hierarchical authority is balanced against a circular structure composed of communal, libertarian, and solidaristic forms of symbolic exchange.

The examination of Lacan’s innovations with respect to the psychoanalytic organization will be considered within the context of his contributions to psychoanalysis and how they address the current predicaments of the psychoanalytic field. Along the way we will show how Lacan’s work on the psychoanalytic organization is indebted to Bion’s work groups.

We will continue with a critical appraisal of what worked and what didn’t work in Lacan’s organization that resulted in Lacan’s dissolution of his school. Finally, we will consider the conditions under which after Lacan, a Lacanian school has been established in the US within the context of the current state of the larger international Lacanian movement. In fact, Lacan’s efforts never actually deviated from the three functions that Eitingon (1922-1925) originally assigned to a psychoanalytic clinic: therapeutic, formative, and research.

Established in 1944 at a Council meeting of the British Psychoanalytical Society chaired by Sylvia Payne, the Ernest Jones Lecture has a rich history of inviting audiences to hear from experts at the forefront of almost every discipline, including anthropology, sculpture, literature, theatre, sociology, philosophy and the law.

This year our speaker is Professor Sir Simon Wessely, Professor of Psychological Medicine and Regius Professor of Psychiatry at King’s College London and a Consultant Liaison Psychiatrist at King’s College and the Maudsley Hospitals. He is also past President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

His doctorate is in epidemiology, and he has over 700 original publications, with an emphasis on the boundaries of medicine and psychiatry, unexplained symptoms and syndromes, population reactions to adversity, military health, epidemiology and others. He has co-authored books on chronic fatigue syndrome, randomised controlled trials and a history of military psychiatry. Professor Wessely is also President of the Royal Society of Medicine. 

This promises to be a stimulating, entertaining and wide-ranging talk, as well as an opportunity to meet with people working and studying across different mental health specialties including psychiatry, psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.
