2016 Gould Fellow at the Clark Art Institut in New York, Art professor Maureen G. Shanahan will explore the psychiatric and photographic work of Gaëtan Gatian de Clérambault (1872-1934), a veteran of the war and chief psychiatrist for the Parisian police in the 1920’s and 30’s. In these years, when the Parisian police provided services to and conducted surveillance of immigrants, Clérambault held a key role in describing, documenting, committing (or exiling) the criminally insane.
This event is co-organized by the Clark Art Institute, in New York and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy.Buy tickets/get more info now
