Click to enlargeTHE LIMITS OF EDUCATION? PERFORMANCE BY GERALD DAVIDSON
Jun 7, 2017 7:00pm - 8:00pm talk/event
- All education is conservative?
- Relative to the society that delivers the education.
- But what of psychoanalytically based education?
 
Vienna 1924. Marxist psychoanalyst and Jewish youth worker Siegfried Bernfeld and Anna Freud reflect on their hopes and fears for postwar education. They discuss the failure of the Baumgarten Centre for Jewish refugee children and the development of child facilities in Social Democratic ('Red') Vienna - and what the future may hold for both of them.
 
- My views make both the Marxists and the Freudians very angry- well I say both Marx and Freud are right- but not the Marxists nor the Freudians. What is in children forced exploitation is made to appear to them as sacrificial love.
 
Gerald Davidson is joined by Helen Clapp who will read the part of Anna Freud.
 
Gerald Davidson continues his series of dramatic presentations on second generation psychoanalytic pioneers, which include Mad about Otto, What Little Hans Knew and Being Good.
 
This event coincides with the exhibition 'The Best Possible School: Anna Freud, Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham and the Hietzing School in 1920s Vienna', on display at the Museum from 10 May - 16 July 2017.

PLAY AT THE FREUD MUSEUM LONDON
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!
 
Exhibition kindly supported by Kings College London

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