“A Bewitched system. The exorcising role of images”
We could easily imagine the system that governs us as a bewitched system, i.e., a system of reciprocal possession between beings and things in which images act as producers of desires. In the so called traditional societies, the healer had no other option to heal the possessed person than to negotiate the invisible world of the “masters,” the spirits inhabiting the sick body. Let’s dare to set a parallelism and wonder: can the images still be considered as one of the active and underlying healing remedies for the disturbances created by the capitalist sorcery?
These lectures are addressed precisely to the users of images.
