Presented by Marybeth Carter, Ph.D. A recent solo exhibition of the work of Swedish artist Hilma af Klint at the Guggenheim NY was the most popular show since the museum opened 60 years ago. In this presentation, visual works and writings of af Klint (1862-1944) and Jung (1875-1961) will be explored, particularly those that portray their encounters with the experience of an invisible ‘other.’ Af Klint’s Swan Series will be used to illustrate Jung’s concept of the androgyne, the dynamic urge toward the union of masculine and feminine principles, the state of consciousness that such a union may engender, and its effect on the development of the personality. Learning Objectives: 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.
