Wunderblock is an exhibition of new work by artist Emma Smith, drawing on original historical research into the post-war fascination with the infant mind.

This research, undertaken by the Hidden Persuaders Project at Birkbeck, University of London, examines ‘brainwashing’ during the Cold War. Smith’s exhibition particularly focuses on this history in relation to the child.

In the wake of World War II there was considerable anxiety about how children’s minds could be shaped or influenced to support fascism, communism or liberal democracy. A generation of children had also directly experienced the devastation of war, separation from their families, or life in institutions. Child psychoanalysis and psychiatry gained a prominent role and it was a time of great innovation and debate. However, observing and interpreting the developing mind, nurturing infant mental health, and supporting good parenting, also became powerful political issues. These were inextricably linked to the interests of the state, and aspirations for generating democratic citizens.

The mother’s close relationship with her newborn became a central preoccupation. The war years and the Nursery School Movement had helped enable women of all classes to work. Post-war research and debate offered conflicting messages, and put women under pressure to return to the home. Arguably, political interest in children’s care inside and outside the home was concerned as much with regulating populations, as with supporting the child and recognising their rights.

Smith’s exhibition turns some of this complex history of debate about nature and nurture, and about benign and malign influences over the child, on its head. Smith asks ‘What is the agency of the child?’, ‘What is innate to the infant and in what ways are they an ‘expert’?’; and, crucially: ‘To what extent does the baby or child influence their environment, and shape the adult’s world?’. Inspired by the rich material surrounding infant observation in psychoanalysis by practitioners such as Melanie Klein, Anna Freud, Margaret Lowenfeld and Donald Winnicott, as well as the emergence of child-centred pedagogy and the anti-psychiatry movement, Wunderblock considers how we might engage with this history and meet the child from their own perspective.

Psychoanalysis and the Classical World

Freud was fascinated by the ancient world - and its myths, such as that of Oedipus, have been a source of continuing interest and inspiration to psychoanalysts. This conference, the fourth in the Institute’s series of conferences on the relations between psychoanalysis and different fields of academic study, will explore the continuing connections between classical philosophy and culture and psychoanalytic inquiry and practice. Its speakers are distinguished  classical scholars, philosophers and psychoanalysts. The conference will be dialogue between these  ways of thinking about human lives, and it is hoped that it will enrich both of them. 

Contributors: David Bell, David Black, Lesley Caldwell, Armand D’Angour, Sebastian Gardner, Edith Hall, Lisa Miller, Ellen Olliensis, Daniel Orrells, Margaret Rustin, Michael Rustin, Juliet Stevenson, Neil Vickers, Margot Waddell.

Cruelty in the early environment and its relationship with racism

Today sees the rise of nationalism, the return of totalitarian parties in Europe to electoral success, and the rise of the alt-right and white supremacists in the US. Jonathan Sklar brings his understanding of cruelty, sadomasochism, perversion, and other mental mechanisms to shine a light on what has led to this situation. He examines how a cruel environment affects early development, leaving the child unable to believe in a secure, loving environment. He also considers the impact of chronic social and political environments, historically imbued with aggressive scapegoating of certain groups of citizens. Such racist, antisemitic, and misogynous cultures invariably work beneath the surface of society, attacking the ordinary fabric of family life in the provision of a particular model of perpetrators and victims – an unconscious playground in which to enact vicious games of us vs. them. By ridding ourselves of the illusions of our political times, we can find greater freedom to think, develop, challenge, and create hope for the future.

Jonathan Sklar is an Independent training analyst and fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society; he’s worked in private practice for over 35 years. He teaches and supervises at the Institute of Psychoanalysis where he regularly has a course on Ferenczi. For ten years he convened a psychoanalytic conference in Cape Town and taught in Chicago termly for a decade. He has lectured widely in Eastern Europe and in the U.S, Canada and South America.

He has been Vice President of the European Psychoanalytic Federation and is currently on the board of the IPA.

He has numerous psychoanalytic papers published and is the author of Landscapes of the Dark: History, Trauma, Psychoanalysis, Karnac, 2011, Balint Matters: Psychosomatics and the Art of Assessment, Karnac 2017, and Dark Times: Psychoanalytic Perspectives on Politics, History and Mourning, Phoenix 2018.
