An illustrated lecture and book release party with Ami Ronnberg, editor-in-chief of Taschen’s The Book of Symbols and curator of ARAS
Date: Friday, January 14th
Presented by Phantasmaphile
Part symbol dictionary, part essay anthology, Taschen’s The Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images is an exquisitely crafted, 5 pound, 810 page image-rich reference book recently released by ARAS, or The Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism – an organization beloved by Jungians, artists, and scholars alike. This evening, the book’s editor-in-chief, Ami Ronnberg, will guide us through an exploration of symbols as they appear in ARAS at the C.G. Jung Center in New York City – and also in The Book of Symbols itself. Throughout, we will look at the role symbols play in our lives, and discover the wondrous ways that psyche and image work in tandem with one another.
Ami Ronnberg, M.A. is curator of ARAS, the Archive for Research in Archetypal Symbolism, one of the world’s most comprehensive resources on art, myths and symbols. She is editor-in-chief for A Book of Symbols: Reflections on Archetypal Images, published by Taschen in December 2010.
