Sanatorium At The Guggenheim Museum’s Stillspotting NYC

 

 

“New Yorkers are notably fascinated with a variety of therapies that help them cope with their hectic schedules, demanding lifestyle choices, and often complicated relationships that the city stimulates. As a result, New York counts a disproportionate number of psychotherapists, self-improvement instructors, life coaches, and the like that host intriguing sessions in equally fascinating spaces around the city. In his temporary clinic, Sanatorium (installed as the first edition of stillspotting nyc in Brooklyn), artist Pedro Reyes combines the best of New York’s existing therapy landscape with unexpected, short, experimental treatments. In two-hour windows, Sanatorium visitors experience up to three sessions from a choice of 15 and meet a series of fascinating therapy professionals. Balancing reality and parody, Sanatorium draws from Gestalt psychology, theater warm-up exercises, Fluxus events, conflict resolution techniques, trust-building games, corporate coaching, psychodrama, and hypnosis. While some of the sessions should be experienced alone, others are specifically catered to couples and larger groups. On Sundays, special sessions will be offered for children.”
