The article aims to highlight the dystopian sublime, the fascination of fear and pain, ranging from art that has given aesthetic visions to the sublime and psychoanalysis that works with the dystopian drifts of suffering. Tracing a brief excursus of the sublime in art, the psychoanalytic theme of sublimation is connected to the negative forms of the dystopian vision of suffering represented in art. The trauma emerges in forms and styles that make the particular, the shattered, the material, the broken up into a contemporary artistic programmatic manifesto. The dystopia relates to the painful and tragic conception of life and takes it to extreme consequences in the vision of the future, exasperat-ing fears and dangers already existing in the past. In the paper, through a brief clinical history, he reflects on how the past changes, looking at it from the distance of a profound analytical reelaboration, which reexamines it like a probe and "feels the echoes". Will the dystopian vision of the future still be a crossing of the desert, will it still have the characteristics of the sublime fearful or will it return, transformed, to less disharmonious dimensions?
Keywords: dystopian sublime, aesthetic of sublime, dystopia, sublima-tion.
