International Open Call: CIRCE :The Black Cut: 3rd Presentation
The New International Open Call of Participation in the 3rd Presentation of CIRCE The Black Cut consists of 3 Phases and its new Theme is ‘CIRCE The Real Cut‘. Keeping the Inspiration Sources of the whole work, as well as its Motivating Axes of «Freedom – Feeling – Codes», this year the call is focusing on the book ‘The Trauma of Birth‘ (1924 / 1929), written by the psychoanalyst, Otto Rank, whereas its structure is based on the 3 orders of the interpretation of the soul; the Symbolic, the Imaginary, the Real (according to the theory of Jacques Lacan).
