New development 4, Thomas Schlesser

After the physicist Etienne Klein on the desire of the researcher and of science, Denis Podalydès on the paradox of the desire of the actor, and Catherine Millet on the one who showed her her pathway to literary writing, Irène Tu Ton, Cathy Barnier and Marc Strauss met with art historian, Thomas Schlesser, to continue these exchanges on “The paradoxes of desire”.

Thomas Schlesser is Director of the Hartung-Bergman foundation in Antibes, and author of several works on caricature and censorship, as well as the Réceptions de Courbet, fantasmes réalistes et paradoxes de la démocratie [Receptions of Courbet: realistic fantasies and paradoxes of democracy]. Here he gives us his version of the desire of the creator, illustrating in a surprising way what Lacan says to us about the “Thing” that spits.
