A Standardized Hypnotic Truth: Hypnosis on vinyl record

A Standardized Hypnotic Truth: Hypnosis on vinyl record between 1930 and 1989

Spätkauf / Ausstellung

Donnerstag 5. März 2020 19 -22 Uhr

On the peak of the Cold War, Hypnosis reached a height of popularity. For a while Hypnosis obtained mainstream’s attention and a niche phenomenon unfolds: Hypnosis on vinyl record. Between 1930 and 1989 approximately 160 records on the theme are being produced worldwide and in total – and proved the helical vinyl record as the hypnotic medium per se.

The format covered a wide range of topics and intentions: from smoking cessation and weight loss hypnosis, to Autosuggestion-method, home study courses and stage hypnosis. But beyond its therapeutical application, above all the hypnosis record anticipated nowadays self-help culture and its hence resulting self-improvement craze.

A Standardized Hypnotic Truth: Hypnosis on vinyl record between 1930 and 1989 recounts the history of the hypnosis record through a selection of artefacts, audio clips and archival findings. 

Curated by Tim Tetzner
