Kathryn Cook-Deegan, a DC Jungian Analyst, will lead a #PhillipsConversation about Jungian psychology. Cook-Deegan specializes in Jungian analysis and the interface between body and soul as well as one’s sense of place in the world. Many of the artists featured in Ten Americans: After Paul Klee were greatly influenced or interested in Jungian psychology; the conversation will explore the importance of Jungian psychology, dream interpretation, and collective unconscious during this time period and how it is still relevant in today’s cultural and political society.
This discussion is part of a series of open conversations that further engage audiences on larger issues represented in the special exhibition. Modeled after town halls, these in-gallery conversations are facilitated by experts and thought leaders with experience addressing current socio-cultural and political movements or other topics related to themes found in the artwork.
