The Philosophy and Psychoanalysis of the Image: Psychoanalyst, Jamieson Wesbter in conversation with philosopher, Chiara Bottici
The Lady with a Thousand Faces: Performance by Swiss visual artist Clarina Bezzola, curated by Vida Mulec
Noted philosopher, Chiara Bottici, and author and psychoanalyst, Jamieson Webster, will engage in a conversation about the history of images. Is the image more real than reality, or the epitome of fiction? Is the image politically conservative or subversive? What is the difference between what is imaginary in an image and what is creative imagination? From Rousseau to Freud and Jung, from Guy Debord to Castoriadis and Jacques Lacan, this conversation will engage with the question of the image as it relates to art and other forms of culture.
Concurrent to the Totem & Taboo exhibition at Tillou Fine Art, there will also be a site-specific window installation by Daniel Horowitz on view at the
Art-in-Buildings located at 223-225 West 10th St., NYC, from November 8th – December 10th.
Lawrence Weschler's talk LEAD INTO GOLD, will trace the millennia-long passion for Wresting Something From Nothing, from Alchemy through Finance, which is to say from philosopher’s stones through subprime loans as part of a series of salons in conjunction with the exhibition TOTEM & TABOO.

Paris, 2016 - In this body of twenty works on paper commissioned by the Musée de la Chasse et de Nature in Paris, Daniel Horowitz dives into the exercise of pseudo-historical documentation. Retelling a fictive safari expedition, he subverts original eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth century artifacts to explore the art of hunting, as a metaphor for man’s quest of self.
