Starting from 1985, the artist and psychoanalyst Bracha L. Ettinger has developed the idea of the "matrixial gaze" based upon her articulation of particular feminine subjectivizing processes, patterned upon the real of pregnancy conceived as a shareable unconscious "borderspace" for affective, phantasmatic and traumatic differentiation in co-emergence and co-fading of partial subjects in jointness. The idea of the matrixial gaze has opened a new horizon for thinking aesthetics and ethics from the angle of feminine subjectivizing agency. The art historians Griselda Pollock and Catherine de Zegher developed readings of art history and contemporary art based on Ettinger's notion of matrixial gaze and screen.
