Jung, Art and Typology with Vicky Jo Varner, PhD
Thursday, March 31, 2022, 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST
Category: APTi Webinars

Jung overtly linked typology to artwork, both in his own creations as well as the creations of his patients.

Jung and his followers were keen to understand the typological qualities that can be detected in artwork as generated by the unconscious via dreams or active imagination.

Several hypotheses have been put forward since Jung’s time about how to “type” works of art, and there is a large collection of patient artwork in the Jung Institute of Zurich.

This presentation seeks to share some of the ways in which artwork may be understood typologically and provides some experiential practice at “typing” artwork. Attendees are invited to bring a few sheets of printer paper and some simple drawing supplies – colored markers, pencils, crayons, or watercolors (nothing fancy!) so we can try our hand at linking art to typology. 

The program is free to APTi members and registrants of the APTi Winter Conference

and $25 for all others

Deadline for registration is Monday, March 28
