Psychoanalysis, Art and Culture program description

Psychoanalysis, Art and Culture program description
Psychoanalysis is not just a psychotherapeutic approach it is also a hermeneutic-phenomenological qualitative research method on human subjectivity and culture. We invite students to delve into the mysteries of the unconscious and discover what contemporary psychoanalysis could say about art and society.

The lectures of the Summer University focus on the most fundamental psychoanalytic concepts and current theoretical constructs. The courses will cover various topics, such as the Budapest School of Psychoanalysis, ecological-psychoanalysis, creativity, literature, a critique of consumerism, occultism, gender studies and further interesting areas of research. You will also have the opportunity to get insight into an art-therapy group experience and to discover the residence of Sándor Ferenczi and his cultural connections to Budapest in the frame of interactive guided walks.

The summer course is open to all who are studying or graduated in human and social sciences or psychology. Besides introducing the students into the manifold theories of psychoanalysis, we offer non-academic programs, too: tours in Budapest and a trip to Lake Balaton will be also organized. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Hungary!
