Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), London

Today everyone seems subject to the demand to enjoy, to make love and sex into a project that succeeds. But the demand that sexual relations should be at the basis both of self-understanding and self-realisation often puts our intimate lives under particular pressure. Psychoanalysts Susie Orbach and Darian Leader, psychoanalytic theorist Renata Salecl and Henrietta L. Moore discuss contemporary sexualities and their uneasy relationship to love, fantasy and intimacy.

Speaker(s): Susie Orbach, Darian Leader, Renata Salecl and Henrietta L. Moore
