The 9th issue of MOCAK Forum strives to show significant relations existing between psychoanalysis and contemporary art.
The issue, titled Psychoanalysis and the Boundaries of Art, is dedicated to contemporary reception of psychoanalysis and its application to art and cultural criticism. It raises the questions of unprofessional art and contemporary education. It also contains information on the MOCAK Archive, featuring some archives connected with Mikołaj Smoczyński. The editor of the issue is Elżbieta Sala. The cover features Honorata Martin's photograph, which is part of her project Going out into Poland (2013).
In the part Psychoanalytic Reflection on Contemporary Culture one can find texts by Lene Auestad, Stephen Frosh, Małgorzata Sacha and Monika Kozioł, to name a few. Kitch and ugliness are subject of Lech Kalita's interview with Justyna Zalewska-Drzeżdżon. An important issue in the part examining the Boundaries of Art is art of socially excluded gropus – unprofessional artists, the insane, the homeless and prisoners. Among other texts there is an interview with psychologist Anna Czajczyk, head of the Custody Suite in Krakow, conducted by Krzysztof Marchlak or Magdalena Mazik's text dedicated to art theraphy at the Józef Babiński Specialist Hospital in Krakow. The educational supplement features interviews with educators from the International Cultural Centre in Krakow, BWA in Tarnów and the National Museum in Krakow. The question of new media and the way they are used by contemporary cultural institutions is discussed in texts by Maciej Jakubowicz and Karina Jarzyńska, who takes a closer look at games and mobile apps at museums.
