This chapter was commissioned by the editors as part of a collection of papers on this new area of research in psychoanalysis and culture. Other contributors include Emily Apter, Tim Dean and Mandy Merck and Otto Kernberg). The work derives from my earlier book Perversion (Icon Books), which has been translated into several languages since its publication in 2000. The essay develops the themes of that work as a challenge of Lacanian psychoanalytic orthodoxy in this area. The essay considers the role of fetishism in the interpretation of avant-garde and newer traditions of site-specific installation in art.
