Scenic Writing and Scenic Understanding
This chapter introduces the concepts of scene and scenic understanding from Alfred Lorenzer, German cultural analyst and psychoanalyst in the Frankfurt tradition1; concepts that are explicitly psycho-social and congruent with the psychoanalytically informed epistemology and methodology that has inspired my research practice. In this tradition, ‘Imagination is scenic in its format: it inter-relates all informative, sensual and situated impressions in holistic images’ (Salling Olesen, 2012, para 3).
