…A flying man! I force the third dimension into the flat plane. (…) I even dream about it. I dream of myself. I dream
that I become my model. Projected self. Upon awakening, I realize the truth of it. I lie in a complicated position, but flat,
attached to the linen surface…
Paul Klee, Diary 3, June 1902

Conference Description

Dreams are nodal points which connect. This connection is apparent, when a daughter tells her dad about her nightly adventures or friends wonder about nocturnal flying experiences, when an artist transforms a dream image into an ever inspiring piece of art, when a scientist solves a scientific riddle through a dream image... But what are dreams about?

The conference aims to have a wide range of papers and workshops on a variety of topics from different perspectives. These include cross-cultural studies, nightmares, lucid dreams, dreams and religion, women’s dreams, children’s dreams, dreams and education, using dreams for therapeutic purposes and dreams and creativity.

The Conference is now over.  Thank you to everyone who participated.
