From Robespierre to Pol Pot – Nuon Chea, via Stalin, Hilter& Mao: A Psyco-Analytical Approach to History
By Dr. Jean Artarit, at the Royal University of Fine Arts Meeting Room No. 72, Ang Yukanthor (St. 19), corner of St. 178, Phnom Penh
Date: Wednesday 15th February, 2017.
In this talk, Professor Jean Artarit will propose to recall the experience of terror under Democratic Kampuchea, by approaching it through the depths of the human psyche, dwelling on narcissistic phenomena observed among most revolutionaries. Pol Pot and Nuon Chea who are being in denial of their past involvement in the tragedy of the second half of the 1970s are the obvious cases in point.
He will also speak about the collective sub-consciousness and the mythical history of Cambodia.
