Amsterdam, 1074 VM
the dormant office (tdo) will host its first Summer School under the title Virtual Enjoyment from the 18th–22nd of July.
The Summer School will provide local and international students and researchers with a focused program of workshops, close-readings, and talks led by four renowned thinkers working at the intersection of philosophy, psychoanalysis and cultural theory: Dominiek Hoens, Isabel Millar, Calum Neill, and Samo Tomšič.
The Summer School's program will problematise the compulsive mode of enjoyment particular to (techno)capitalism, its repercussion on the speaking body, the organisation of contemporary social life, and the future. As a framework, the program will return to Lacan's foundational seminars XVI and XVII–From an Other to the other and The Other Side of Psychoanalysis– in order to elaborate on the critical perspectives they still offer for contemporary critiques of capitalism, especially in their exposition of the structural and logical relation between capitalist economy, science, and religion.
