From Mesmer's magnetic fluid to the hypnosis practiced by Charcot at the Salpêtrière, from Freud to Lacan, from the surrealists to the most contemporary practices, Pascal Rousseau offers a fascinating visual history of hypnosis and links for the first time artistic practices and the cultural history of hypnotism. At the crossroads of several fields - history of art, history of science and popular culture - this unique work brings together more than 500 illustrations.


The book is being published on the occasion of the exhibition Hypnose at the Musée d'arts de Nantes, from October 16, 2020 to January 31, 2021, curated by Pascal Rousseau, alongside Sophie Lévy, curatorial director of the Musée d'arts de Nantes.
