REWIND/FAST-FORWARD : TAPES FROM THE FREUD MUSEUM
Sep 16, 2018 12:00pm - 5:00pm talk/event
Over the last six months, participants in the Transcultural Memory course in the Visual Cultures Department at Goldsmiths have been exploring the intersections of the politics of memory, philosophy, psychoanalysis, race and colonialism.
This event will examine the temporality of remembering and forgetting (rewinding and fast-forwarding) through audio visual art practices, particularly in relation to migration. Freud’s’ writing and case studies will serve as the starting point to analyse the current political framework of the immigration crisis and the trauma of belonging.
 
Artworks are perhaps the best instruments to help us understand the journey of the migrant, its traumatic departures and the uncertainty of arrival. Tapes from the Freud Museum will explore the idea of memory and forgetting through film installations, soundtracks, archival materials and psychoanalytic concepts developed by Sigmund Freud.
 
Join us for an affective and non-spatial journey through time.
Included in the admission ticket to the Museum.

THE ENIGMA OF THE HOUR : 100 YEARS OF PSYCHOANALYTIC THOUGHT
Jun 6 - Aug 4, 2019
This exhibition presents archival material touching on the origins and life of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis alongside contemporary artworks, bringing together themes central to both psychoanalysis and art: translation, transformation, temporality, the unconscious, metaphor and dreams. The artworks address these ideas, creating a conversation that reverberates throughout the evocative rooms of the Freud Museum.

Aug 7 - Oct 13, 2019
This new exhibition explores Freud’s enduring fascination with Egypt.
 
Freud was thinking about the archaeology of the mind in tandem with important developments in professional archaeology and Egyptology. This fascinating new exhibition will bring Freud into dialogue with his contemporary Flinders Petrie, the first UK Professor of Egyptology and enable us to compare their thoughts on archaeology and their respective collections of artefacts.
