Photography & Psychoanalysis: Unconscious in the Urban Space
4:30 am - 10:00 am EDT
Stillpoint Spaces Berlin
Hobrechtstrasse 66, Vorderhaus EG
Is the psyche inside of us, or are we inside of the psyche? Photography can help us answer this question, making us move along into the urban space with a chain of signifiers, just like we move along through this chain during a psychoanalysis. Is it a coincidence that these two inventions, photography and psychoanalysis, date back to the same period? Perhaps they have more in common than we think!
This very possibility of a shared beginning is the motivation behind this first workshop.
We will start exploring part of this connection between the two disciplines, and focus our conceptual gaze onto the physical reality by seeking out links between theory and experience. The workshop proposes a practice of finding ties, metaphorical or otherwise, between the two, by specifically looking for traces of the Lacanian concept of “lamella” in the streets of our city.
Participants are kindly asked to bring their own camera, not necessarily a professional one. No background in photography or psychology is required.

Aghi is a visual artist who explores the relationship between photography, poetry, and psychology. The main theme of his work is the concept of space, intended both as urban landscape and as inner landscape, exploring a vision where the outward is always a metaphor of the self. He likes to consider his photography as a journey into depth psychology that lies outside of man, taking place through the classic situationist “derive”.
His main working tool is the classical street photography.
Aghi graduated from the Italian Institute of Photography, his publications have appeared in several international magazines, and has had two solo shows in Milan and in Rome.
