    Sudek, Janáček, Huvaldy, and Me

    "Sudek, Janáček, Huvaldy, and Me"
    with Adele Tutter, MD, PhD

    Adele Tutter presents a second essay on the aesthetic transformation of national and cultural identity as a means to defend against the dehumanization of political oppression. She juxtaposes a consideration of works of the Czech composer Leoš Janáček and the Czech photographer Josef Sudek with personal reflections on being the child of a Czech dissident during the Cold War. We hope to engage the following issues:

    1. Difficulties around memoir and self-disclosure in psychoanalytic writing.
    2. The development of a monograph from serial essays with different aims.

    The first essay in the series (Angel with a missing wing: Loss, restitution, and the embodied self in the photography of Josef Sudek. American Imago 70:127-190, 2013), provides context, and is available in pdf from the author (atutter@mac.com).
