Comment
A psycho-analytical analysis of de Clérambault's cloth-studies - a series
of some 40.000 negative of Maroccan men and women mostly clothed in stiff
silk. The discussion derives from a critique of 'utilitarianism' -
focussing the use of cloth as utilitarian, and not per se as sexual. A
rather evocative and 'broad' criticism of his photographic as well as his
influential psychialric-theoretical oeuvre.
