About Us


Lacanian Affinities Berlin (laLAB) is a group composed of individuals coming from a plurality of backgrounds and cultural origins who have an affinity for the work of Jacques Lacan. The group was formed at Stillpoint Spaces Berlin, and its many ventures include: academic seminars, workshops, artistic projects, community events, publications of sorts and more. The group aims to augment Lacan’s teaching by producing cultural surplus that defies established boundaries between disciplines and practices.
