When God Did Take My Logic For A Ride: David Bowie and the Process of Individuation

Jung Center
David Bowie (1947-2016) was a one of a kind artist who worked within the genres of rock and roll music, mime, acting (in multiple media, including the stage, film and video), video auteur and writer for the stage. His work offers the chance to explore the individuation process which C.G. Jung felt was the core principle of his psychological theories. Bowie was aware of Jung’s theories and we can see elements of many archetypes in his work. This seminar will use his videos and life story to explore concepts of shadow, ego, Self, anima, animus and transformation, as well as Jung’s writings on the role of the artist in the collective unconscious.
