Certainly marked by the work of Jaques Lacan, much as by the writing on Jaques Lacan, Lacanian Ink has been going for over 20 years. And Lacanian Ink belongs in NYC, it was born here, it is done here.
"If I am anything in the picture it is always in the form of a screen."
This screen casts a shadow. Lacan calls it a scotoma—a stain, or a spot. Set out to cause perplexity and desire, Lacanian Ink wants to be a disquieting object to the US culture. Here it spills, marks… akin to the function of silence, as regards the analyst, the subject divides: the desire to be seen goes together with the desire to see more. Specially honored by the writings of Jacques-Alain Miller, Alain Badiou, Slavoj Žižek, Éric Laurent, Marie-Hélène Brousse… the certain authors became enduring contributors, as well as permanent speakers at the twice a year Lacanian Ink event to follow both, the Autumn and Spring issues. "This is the only publication," says Žižek, "I write for in a regular basis."
A witness to the Arts, Lacanian Ink lays out a Lacanian critique. Today, the special kind of critique spreads way beyond the journal.
