Mark Cousins - "The Space of Exception"

Theories on confinement and the philosophy of pain.

"The Space of Exception"

This lecture will be discussing theories on confinement and the philosophy of pain.

Background: Mark's background is in Psychoanalysis. He currently heads the Architectural Association's post-graduate programmes in the Histories and Theories of Architecture, as well as the Undergraduate General Studies Programme. He is also Visiting Professor of Architecture at Columbia University, and has been a member of the Arts Council and consultant to the practice of Zaha Hadid.

Mark has his own very popular annual public lecture series - previous topics include "The Image", "The Object" and "Psyche and Space". His published work includes a book on Foucault. He has also written on the relation of the human sciences and psychoanalysis, and contributed to many journals. His most recent publication is the Introduction to a new translation of a selection of Freud’s papers on The Unconscious. He is currently working on Odysseus and the history of homecoming; and the concept of ‘scape’ which is embedded in landscape.
