This exhibition marks the centenary of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis.
This exhibition presents archival material touching on the origins and life of the International Journal alongside contemporary works of art, bringing together themes central to both psychoanalysis and art: translation, transformation, temporality, the unconscious, metaphor and dreams. The works address these ideas, creating a conversation that reverberates throughout the evocative rooms of the Freud Museum.
The archival presentation explores the prehistory of the journal, the hidden role of women in its early years, its beginnings and connections with the Bloomsbury Group, and the influence of classical art and culture on Freud’s ideas and the visual identity of the International Journal.
The exhibition includes new commissions by Simon Moretti and Goshka Macuga, alongside specially selected works by invited artists Linder, Daniel Silver and Paloma Varga Weisz. On display are loans from the British Psychoanalytic Society, Tate and the Wellcome Trust including works by Duncan Grant, Barbara Ker-Seymer with John Banting and Rodrigo Moynihan, along with items from The Freud Museum Collection.
