Dr. Vanessa Sinclair

Rendering Unconscious is a podcast about psychoanalysis, culture and more hosted by Dr. Vanessa Sinclair, a psychoanalyst from New York City, now based in Stockholm. Dr. Sinclair sees patients internationally, specializing in online and remote treatment for entrepreneurs, creatives and business people who travel, offering continuity and quality of care for modern people on the go, as well as for those who are home-bound or live in remote locations and may not have access to psychoanalytic treatment in their area.

A founding member of Das Unbehagen: A Free Association for Psychoanalysis, Dr. Sinclair facilitates lectures, events and conferences internationally, including On Violence and Psychoanalysis (2015) with Dr. Manya Steinkoler, which has evolved into a book On Psychoanalysis and Violence: Contemporary Lacanian Perspectives (Routledge, 2018), and the Psychoanalysis, Art & the Occult conference in London (2016) co-hosted with Swedish author Carl Abrahamsson, of which an anthology of collected papers became a special edition of The Fenris Wolf, vol 9  (Trapart, 2017). 

Her most recent conference was Re-writing the Future: 100 Years of Esoteric Modernism and Psychoanalysis co-hosted with Carl Abrahamsson at  Schloß Pienzenau & Brunnenburg Castle in Merano, Italy, May 30 – June 1, 2019. For more on that please visit www.psychartcult.org

Most recently, she edited a collection of contemporary psychoanalytic writing and poetry under the title Rendering Unconscious: Psychoanalytic Perspectives, Politics & Poetry (Trapart Books, 2019) and authored the book Scansion in Psychoanalysis and Art: the Cut in Creation forthcoming from Routledge (2020). Dr. Sinclair is also the author of Switching Mirrors (Trapart Books, 2016) a book of cut-up poetry.

Together with artist Katelan Foisy, she explores the creative potential of the cut-up method and third mind. A book of their work Chaos of the Third Mind is upcoming from Fulgur Ltd (2020).

Val Denham has called her, “A female William Burroughs for the age of desperation.”
