BARBOSA, Pablo Bergami Goulart  and  RIVERA, Tania. Out of sight: on image and montage in psychoanalytic practice. Psyche (Sao Paulo) [online]. 2006, vol.10, n.17, pp.143-156. ISSN 1415-1138.

The present article analyses the role of image in the psychoanalytic practice. The subject of image is dealt with through two main concepts: fantasy and fetish. Both are constructs of images that contain in their structures the marks of the inner psychic tensions that shape them, and through that they characterize the dimension of image in psychoanalysis. A conception of the psychoanalytic treatment as a form of clinic that dwells in the space between images and words is proposed, as well as a parallel between such practice and cinematographic montage. The goal of psychoanalytic treatment would be, thus, remaking the montage of the symptomatic narrative of the subject undergoing psychoanalysis, through the handling of transference.

Keywords : Psychoanalysis; Image; Transference; Cinema; Montage.
