Picture Archive

The Picture Archives of the C.G. Jung Institute Zurich in Küsnacht comprises some 14,000 drawings from patients and analysands who worked with C.G. Jung or with therapists of the following generations. It also hosts a broad collection of comparative material from the history of the human spirit intended to aid in researching motifs, images, and their archetypal symbolism. "Painting from the Unconscious" is part of a method described by Jung as "Active Imagination". Beginning in 1916, Jung began using this method with his patients, after having experimented with it himself for many years. The idea is to get in touch with inner fantasies and then to reflect on them consciously. This takes place by concentrating on images that appear as motifs in dreams or in spontaneous fantasies or that arise in the context of emotional states.
