In contact with the planet Mars and muse of the surrealists, Élise Müller, sometimes also called Hélène Smith. The exhibition, organized by the Library of Geneva, in collaboration with the Archives Institut Jean-Jacques Rousseau, aims to follow the journey of the medium as a woman and to restore the social space in which she lived.
Geneva, 1899. Théodore Flournoy publishes “From the Indies to the Planet Mars”, a book which enjoys international success. The work offers a scientific interpretation of the mediumistic sessions during which Élise Müller, whom he renames Hélène Smith, manifests supernormal talents. His stories and his artistic work are quickly shown in the largest European institutions, such as recently at the Venice Biennale.
