Psychoanalysis and the arts have always been companions: Freud draws on Sophocles and Michelangelo; Jung on Hesse; and Lacan and Irigaray on Aeschylus. Renowned theorist and practitioner of psychoanalysis and gender theory Juliet Mitchell joins Timothy Mathews for a conversation exploring how art and psychoanalysis speak to each other and to life.
