The Rubin Screenings of The Red Book Dialogues
Screening of a filmed conversation between Performance artist Marina Abramovic + analyst Lee Robbins
Dialogues originally took place in 2009 when the Rubin Museum exhibited Carl Jung’s Red Book (October 2009-February 2010).
Post-screening discussion with Lee Robins of the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association.
Presented in conjunction with the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association (JPA).
Marina Abramovic is a New York-based Serbian performance artist. Active for over three decades, she has recently begun to describe herself as the “grandmother of performance art." With an often pronounced mystical sensibility, Abramovic's work questions the performer/audience relationship and explores the limits of the body. Through gesture and ritual she examines the nature of consciousness.
Lee Robbins, Ph.D is a Jungian analyst in New York City and vice president of the Jungian Psychoanalytic Association where she is on the teaching faculty. Dr. Robbins is an adjunct professor of Psychology and Religion at New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study where she teaches interdisciplinary seminars on Jung and the Postmodern, Alchemy, Buddhism and the History of the Unconscious.
