Swedish father of psychoanalysis Carl Jung had a direct impact on a variety of first-rate artists, from Pollock to Fellini. Watkins’ student-led art operation Co.H teamed with the Nashville Psychoanalytic Study Group to bring a stellar group of Jungian experts together for a discussion on Jung’s influence on art, society and contemporary thought.
A screening of Matter of Heart — a 1986 feature-length doc that combines archival footage with in-depth interviews with Jung’s former pupils, friends and colleagues — will follow. The panel discussion will be moderated by Donna Krupkin Whitney, and will feature Matter of Heart’s producer Michael Whitney as well as Jungian experts Gretchen Watts and Donna Scott.
A rough version of the documentary is available online. Watch it after the jump.
