A discussion with Zoe Beloff, artist and archivist and Aaron Beebe, Director of The Coney Island Museum
The Coney Island Amateur Psychoanalytic Society was a unique organization which flourished from 1926 through the early 1970s. Members, most of them working people from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, were filled with the desire to participate in one of the great intellectual movements of the 20th century. The exhibition currently on view at the Coney Island Museum presents a range of their activities which reveal an incredibly brave, unapologetic exploration of their inner lives. Beloff and Beebe will present an overview of the work of the Society including the long lost “Dream Films”, the Sunday lectures, plans for Dreamland and the controversy over the lost “Sigmund Freud” figure at the World in Wax Musée.
The book/DVD “The Coney Island Amateur Psychoanalytic Society and their Circle 1926-1972″(more on that here) published by Christine Burgin (June 2009) will be available for purchase.
Hope to see you there!
