The Republic of Dreams: an Analytical-Anthropological Research on Social Dreaming During Pandemics
Bartosz Samitowski (AJAP)
The Polish Republic of Dreams is a qualitative study of social dreaming, narratives and the collective unconscious in Poland, initiated during the Covid-19 pandemic, based on the perspective of modern dream anthropology inspired by Jungian analysis and image work. The presentation will discuss the main symbols, motifs, narratives and amplifications results of the research on two levels: analytical and anthropological. Based on the research, a performance was being created under the same title in conjunction with a professional theatre. Insights from this work will be shared as part of the presentation.
