Becoming Conscious: A Jungian Lens on Artist Hilma af Klint
January 22, 2022 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
MARYBETH CARTER, PHD
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 af Klint’s life experiences and creative achievement, then explore the parallels with those of Jung and Jungian psychology.
