Jul 19 - Sep 10, 2017
‘It is only in playing that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self.’ - Donald W. Winnicott
 
We all play. We all need play. Play is at the core of development, of creativity, of mental health. It is a source of fun, a way of dealing with anxieties, of creating something new, of building relationships. It helps to define who we are and what we can do.
 
Using storytelling, art works, oral histories and interactive games, this exhibition will explore play and its many meanings in psychoanalysis. It will look at play in the work of Sigmund and Anna Freud and other key figures, both in psychoanalytic history and today. It also aims to entice people of all ages to play at the Freud Museum, with an open invitation: Come and play!

The Freud Museum London is proud to present Toby Ziegler’s exhibition The Genesis Speech.
