“Off the Couch” is a new ezine (web-based magazine) edited by Robert White. The ezine is a brand new offshoot of Arnie Richard’s successful www.Internationalpsychoanalysis.net blog. Volume one, number two of the ezine, just released, is devoted to the arts and culture of Mexico with articles on photography, art and folk arts. The visuals are worth a visit alone. But the articles are really interesting. Bob White writes an introduction to the issue; I was asked to write an introduction to the pleasures of Mexico City (which is a summary of the information in this blog) but then there are some seriously fascinating pieces. Danielle Knafo’s article “Frida Kahlo: Mother and Mirror” satisfies some of the gnawing fascination Frida’s work instills in the viewer. Arden Rothstein introduces the fabulous folk art of Oaxaca, which really is quite incredible. Bob White took on the complex subject of the painting Kahlo created in response to Freud’s Moses and Monotheism. Poetry by Martin Espada is also included. To see the magazine, go to Off the Couch.
