objet a

digital video, 04’28”

“The partner of the subject who makes a demand, the self, is not the Other, but the substitution of something that makes a desire (…) There are only talking bodies, I said, who create the concept of the world. But here we can say that the world as such, the world of being completely filled with knowledge, is only a dream, the dream of the speaking body. There is no cognizing subject. There are only subjects that exist as correlates of each other in the objet a.” (Jacques Lacan)
