Baas in Eigen Brein [Be the Boss of Your Brain]
Arnhem, Netherlands: Kollektief Landelijke Aktie Psychiatrie, n.d., ca. 1979. Poster issued by the Dutch anti-psychiatry movement organization the Kollektief Landelijke Aktie Psychiatrie, promoting a four-day event held in Arnhem. The poster shows a white head in profile against a black background, the top of the skull opening up to release the word "Baas." The movement was inspired by Scottish psychiatrist Ronald Laing, whose own practices were based on existential philosophy, rejecting the generally accepted practice of using the patient's feelings as legitimate representations of lived experiences.
