Prof. Christian Gaillard
In this lecture, we shall try to see how, from early childhood and at different stages of his life and work, Jung’s encounters with the arts gave sustenance to the way he lived and thought about relationships to the unconscious.

To do so, we will have to overcome some oddly persistent misunderstandings concerning his Red Book and his essays on Picasso and Joyce. We shall then focus on the advances made by Neumann in the field, especially with regard to the course of our collective history and modern and contemporary creation.

Lastly, we shall reconsider the respective insights of Jung and Neumann in light of today’s research on prehistoric art, and of the recent presentation of the Red Book at the last Contemporary Art Biennale in Venice.

Christian Gaillard is a doctor of psychology (Sorbonne and EPHE), training analyst, supervisor and former president of the SFPA and of the IAAP, professor at the National Academy of Fine Arts in Paris till 2007, lecturer at several universities.
