Performance art, or actual psychoanalysis in progress? Billy Corgan and David Byrne are set to be psychoanalyzed at New York's Rubin Museum of Arts as part of a series of discussions on the famous psychoanalyst Carl Jung. The musicians will appear on separate nights, and will be paired onstage with a psychoanalyst, who will ask them to respond to and interpret a folio from Jung's Red Book as a jumping off point for a broader conversation.
Corgan will take the stage to be psychoanalyzed on November 14; Byrne's appearance is scheduled one week later, on November 21st. The Byrne event is sold out, but tickets for Corgan's sure-to-be-intense session are still available. For those unable to attend, audio and video podcasts of the sessions will be made available at some point after the events.
