The World in 1913
From 1913-16, CG Jung induced a series of fantasies in which he confronted figures from his personal and cultural history and attempted to liberate himself from mass behavior and ideology. He recorded these inner dialogs in an illuminated manuscript: The Red Book.
The World in 1913 is a performance and installation freely inspired by The Red Book. It will create a space in which spectators are encouraged to engage in their own “active imaginations”, to, like Jung, use image-making to imagine alternative, more hopeful, futures.
