  2. GRAFF ME # LEBANON est un projet d'échange culturel entre l'Europe et le Liban, financé par l'Union Européenne.

    De septembre à décembre 2013, l'équipe GRAFF ME a investi les rues de Beyrouth lors de performances graffiti réalisées par les artistes KATRE, EPS, ZEPHA, PHAT2, ZEUS, PHYSH, DEMON, ZED, RESO, M3ALLEM, TILT et ASHEKMAN. GRAFF ME s'est aussi engagé dans des actions d'échanges au travers d'un atelier et d'un Jam graffiti à l'école publique d'Ain El Remeneh, d'une conférence à l'Unesco Palace, d'un café débat à T-Marbouta et d'une exposition street art à la galerie 169.

    Lors de ce projet, nous avons choisi de mettre le graffiti à l’honneur car il puise dans les différences de chacun tout en donnant la possibilité de vivre dans les ressemblances de tous. Libre et novateur, il est l'interstice propice à la rencontre positive des différences

  3. THE THIRD ANNUAL SOLANGE SKINNER LECTURE

    SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 2014 @ 1:00 – 4:00 pm at Wilson Hall, 234 Herrick Road, Newton Centre MA

    THREE CRITICS ON FREUD’S ‘REMEMBERING, REPEATING AND WORKING-THROUGH’

    A CONVERSTION WITH STEPHEN GREENBLATT, JOSEPH KOERNER, and WENDY LESSER
    Moderated by ADAM PHILLIPS

    In this program, three distinguished critics respond to Freud’s classic paper, “Remembering, Repeating and Working-Through” (1914), the fifth of his six Papers on Technique written a century ago. Freud in this brief yet subtle essay addresses the question of how psychoanalysis works, and how it differs from other forms of treatment. “The main instrument for curbing the patient’s compulsion to repeat,” he writes, “and for turning it into a motive for remembering, lies in the handling of the transference” (154).

    Beyond those profound clinical questions, Freud has given us an essay on the universal conflicts of stasis and change, recurrence and discovery, habit and transformation: elements in human life in general, as well as in the clinical realm. Freud uses the terms “illness” and “real life.” Between those two realms, he posits an “intermediate region,” a “Tummelplatz” or playing field: Freud’s metaphor for the transference arena where the compulsion to repeat, which is the patient’s way of remembering, may deploy itself. Freud calls this “Tummelplatz” an “intermediate region between illness and real life through which the transition from the one to the other is made.”

    We invite an imaginative art historian, an innovative literary critic, and intellectual historian, and a uniquely lively writer on theatre, music and most recently on “reading” to look at that Tummeplatz and respond to it in their own terms. The conversation will be guided by Adam Phillips who combines the clinical perspective with that of a brilliant writer. That is what, in addition to their erudition and scholarship, all four of these panel participants are – like Sigmund Freud – writers, in the best sense of the word.

    Learning Objectives

    1. To understand Freud’s views on the role of transference in remembering and repeating, and in working-through the resistances of the unconscious.

    2. To learn about the use of Freud’s ideas in the humanities, and about what psychoanalysis can learn from other fields.

    3. To understand the relationship between working-through the resistances of the unconscious and creativity.

    Review of the Nature DVD of the Flowers of Provence DVD
    This is the first ambient DVD I have ordered from this group but it will not be the last. This is a quality production that works perfectly for me.
    There are three themes as the description notes: 1-fields of lavender, 2-red poppies and 3-sunflowers. Of the three the poppies may be the weakest but even it is mesmerizing in that way you would like it to be - guiding your mind to a stressless relaxed place. The lavender segment was my favorite and I felt the most beautiful of the three. (Ok, I'm partial to light purple). I noticed within minutes that I was fully absorbed in the colors and movement of the scene and far distant from the work-day world I had just left. The sunflowers are the happiest and you will be hard-pressed to keep a smile off of your face while you watch it.
    The primary segments of each theme have a light slow piano accompaniment which I was a little leery of but turned out to be a very nice addition. Each theme also has a silent segment labelled Relaxation, so you could play your own background and then there is a final with a montage of the three themes.
    This DVD would work beautifully as a background to a small social gathering and I especially like having my big flat-screen tv do something other than sit there and look like a big black hole in my livingroom when I have guests. I don't have an HD DVD player but still found the video quality to be quite good. If you have an HD player it will be even better.
    The evening I watched this turned out to be some of the best programming I have seen on my LCD tv since I got it last year. After I watched everything once, I restarted it and notice some periodic hesitation, which may be due to my older DVD player. I think this DVD will be on my shopping list for friends and family this coming Christmas. This was exactly what I was looking for and overall exceeded my expectations. Enjoy!

    Review of Nature DVD:Flowers of Provence
    I've had nature dvds of flowers before, in fact I have a lot of nature/relaxation style dvds, but this one is very different. These are fields of flowers growing in the French countryside. There are scenes of lavender, poppies and sunflowers, each in separate films set to music, then additional scenes with their natural sounds.
