The Burgholzli Psychiatric Clinic, affiliated with the University of Zurich, was an important station in Jung’s life. He began working there as a young assistant doctor shortly after completing his medical studies in 1900, and departed as the Assistant Director under Professor Eugen Bleuler in 1909. It was Beuler introduced him to the work of Sigmund Freud, and started Jung on his Word Association Experiments, which eventually led to his theory of the complexes. His research had been designed to test Freud’s ideas. It was in Burgholzli that Jung also began working with his first psychoanalytic patient, Sabina Spielrein, who not only recovered, but went on to become a psychiatrist herself, working with both Jung and Freud, and contributing original ideas to the psychoanalytic movement.

Meet in the Conference Room
Ulrich Hoerni became the first president and director of the newly established Foundation of the Works of C.G.Jung in 2007 and is a former manager of the Executive Committee of the Community of Heirs of C.G.Jung. He earned a degree in architecture at the Swiss Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH). He is a grandson of C.G.Jung. Since 1993, he was involved in the preparations for the publication of works by C.G.Jung, including The Red Book, The Art of C.G.Jung, The ETH Lectures (forthcoming) and several correspondence volumes.
Unearthing Jung’s Visual Work: An Inside Report of 20 Years of Research
C.G.Jung’s life was deeply entrenched in visual work and thinking. However, he published very few images of his visual work during his lifetime. Accordingly, his creative output remained scantily documented in the edition of the Collected Works. His memoir (Memories Dreams Reflections) mentions a number of objects but without reproductions. Consequently, Jungs artistic œuvre and its significance for his lifework fell into oblivion for a considerable number of years. Ulrich Hoerni in 1993 began to pick up the pieces of this lost treasure, tracing the whereabouts and the history of Jung’s rich creative legacy. The project of inventorying and re-constructing the remaining corpus of Jung’s visual works resembled the assembly of an unknown jigsaw puzzle of a lot of small pieces of text and visual sources. Based on concrete examples, this presentation will demonstrate what questions, problems and surprises the quest for the identification and classification of the objects brought, and what principles were applied when presenting this material in the publication of The Art of C.G.Jung.
In working with dreams, consciousness encounters the unconscious. These two parts of our self are so wholly different that for consciousness, the encounter is like Alice entering Wonderland- profound and alien, expansive and confusing. Consciousness tries to understand but almost by definition gets it wrong not because the unconscious is deceptive but because its perspective is so different. Dreams tell us something we do not already know but in a language we often do not understand. The value in trying is that working with dreams begins to illuminate the invisible roots beneath our ordinary, day to day world. The unconscious shows us the big picture underlying our lives.

A Jungian Aesthetic: Art, Active Imagination, and the Creative Process
This paper discusses the prospects for a Jungian aesthetic. In the history of modern art there is, in Surrealism, a famous Freudian aesthetic based on free association and inquires why, in contrast, there is no Jungian aesthetic based on active imagination. The paper addresses the ambivalent, even contradictory, attitudes that Jung exhibits toward art and aesthetics in relation to the psyche (and especially in relation to the anima). It emphasizes that Jung ultimately argues that “aesthetic formulation” is psychologically just as necessary and just as valuable as “understanding.”
Dream Art Sculpture: Emergence of the Winged Serpent
Maria Taveras is a Jungian Analyst in private practice based in New York City. She is a graduate and former Board member of the C.G. Jung Institute of New York. She is also an award-winning painter and sculptor of Dream Art. To investigate the unconscious sources of creativity, she paints and sculpts images from her own dreams. Taveras has received two Gradiva Awards from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis for her Dream Art. She is a faculty member for the C.G. Jung Foundation of Analytical Psychology in New York City.

This trip is designed to explore some of the major places where Jung (1875-1961) lived and was active as a psychoanalyst. We will land in Zurich and take Zurich as our base. Jung is one of the leading psychoanalysts of the twentieth century and left a huge impact on the field of psychoanalysis. We will follow the traces of his Lebenswelt in Zurich and vicinity with an emphasis on his development and practice as a psychoanalyst. We will start with a tour of the first places Jung found himself on our planet and visit Kesswil and Laufen where his father, Paul Achilles Jung was a rural pastor. In 1900 Jung started working at the Burghölzlipsychiatric hospital in Zürich with Eugen Bleuler. In addition to the Burghölzli, we will visit the C. G. Jung institute of Zurich and Jung’s house at Seestrasse in Küsnacht, the Rheinfall, his country house known as Bollingen, and Jung’s tower (from outside). During our visits we will interact and have dialogues with Jungian analysts and scholars and explore the many aspects of Jungian psychoanalysis.
