fAABI are pleased to invite you to join us for a tour of the Freud Museum, which was the home and final resting place of the founder of psychoanalysis.
At our most recent Movie Night we played ‘A Dangerous Method’; The story orbits around the relationship between two intellectual heavyweights, Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud and unfolds in turn-of-the-century Vienna and Zurich. However, in 1938 Freud had to flee from his home in Vienna and in doing so he took up residence in London.
This trip will be a follow-on from the movie and is a great opportunity to learn more about one of the most influential and controversial thinkers of his time. You will see key elements of the movie come to life while you stroll around museum. The guided tour will also explore the landmark contributions of Anna Freud, the daughter of Sigmund Freud, to psychoanalysis and education.
A new exhibition at the Freud Museum will explore the connection between Salvador Dali and Freud, starting from their one meeting, to which Dali brought his recently completed painting The Metamorphosis of Narcissus. The painting, on loan from the Tate, is the central point in the exhibition for an exploration of the extensive influence of Freud on Dali and on Surrealism. Also considered is Freud’s own attitude to painting, illuminated by his response to this encounter with Dali.
