A Jungian Lens on Artist Hilma af Klint
May 11, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $30.00 – $50.00
Presented by Marybeth Carter, Ph.D.
The Swedish artist, Hilma af Klint (1862-1944), has transitioned from obscurity to prominence as was illustrated recently by a solo exhibition of her work. This exhibition (October 12, 2018-April 23, 2019) became the Guggenheim New York’s most popular show since the museum opened 60 years ago.
In addition to the incredible visual quality of her art, af Klint impels the viewer to consider concepts and states similar to Jung’s (1875-1961)creative expressions, both through his visual works and writings. Through their prolific output, af Klint and Jung each reveal their personal encounters with an invisible “other” and explore the multi-dimensional. This presentation will review Hilma a Klint’s life experiences and creative achievement, then explore the parallels with those of Jung and Jungian psychology.
- Describe what is meant by the term androgyne as described by Jung;
- Give an example of how the archetype of the androgyne can create psychological conflict and ways of addressing this in treatment.
