Lieven Jonckheere, The Politics of “Atopia of the Intimate” in Contemporary Art: The View from Lacanian Psychoanalysis (Response to Gérard Wajcman), S

Essay that discusses Lacan’s notion of the extimate in relation to the voice; the idea of the voice as extracted from the body and projected into outer space. Lacan defines ‘extimity’ as ‘exteriority which is the most intimate to us, what is closet to us, being all the same outside of us’. The essay discusses the voice in terms of the notion of it as the object of invocative enjoyment. Also there is the idea as to whether the voice is on the side of the exposed subject or on the Other’s side. There is reference made to Bruce Nauman’s work with the voice.
