RIVERA, Tania. Subject in psychoanalysis and contemporary art. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.1, pp.13-24. ISSN 0103-5665.

In art, the subject displays itself as nothing but a fleeting effect, emerging in a circuit that requires the other and is only complete with it. Such an effect is taken by Freud as one of the pillars of psychoanalytic theory, from the moment he appeals to King Oedipus to support his theory of the subject. This connection allows us to re-situate the convergence of psychoanalysis and art and to turn it into a theoretical-critical strategy for both fields in contemporaneity.

Keywords : subject; object; contemporary art; psychoanalysis.
