WRESTLING WITH AZAZEL - JUNG AND MODERN ART, A CRITICAL APPRAISAL.

"I am only prejudiced against all forms of modern art. It is mostly morbid and evil." (C.G. Jung Letters volume 1, Letter to Esther Harding 7/8/47, p. 469.)

Ever since I read this statement I was perplexed by Jung's vehemence. Writing two years after the catastrophe of WWII, with the understanding of evil as an autonomous substance (and not just a privatio boni), Jung piles morbidity and evil on modern art. Why such an intense reaction? This paper is my attempt at imagining an answer. (Sylvester Wojtkowski)
