My essay »Cinema as an Art of Healing« was chosen for the latest issue of CLIO’S PSYCHE (Volume 27 Number 2).
At the threshold of the 20th century, psychoanalysis arises as a new art of healing. Simultaneously, cinema establishes itself as a healing art. From a psychohistorical perspective, I examine the origin of cinema and the psychological interaction between photoplay and spectator. This is the starting point for introducing cinema as a method of cultural studies, which delivers insight into the paradigms and the future development of a society.
The whole publication will soon be available on cliospsyche.org.
