Psychic Space – Brainwashing and the Cold War Sept. 23

If you are one of many who have been engaged by the documentary “The Social Dilemma,” here is an opportunity to reach back into the roots of the topic. “Psychic Space – Brainwashing and the Cold War” is today’s topic on Cold War Spaces from the Wende Online. A focus from a previous exhibit at the museum in 2017, Curator Joes Segal will speak with Daniel Pick, psychoanalyst and Professor of History at Birkbeck, University of London. Pick is leading a research group at Birkbeck exploring the history of the human sciences and ‘psy’ professions during the Cold War. He currently holds a Senior Investigator grant from the Wellcome Trust for this project, entitled ‘Hidden Persuaders’: Brainwashing, Culture, Clinical Knowledge and the Cold War Human Sciences, c. 1950-1990′
