Click to enlargeREWIND/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.

FREUD, DALÍ, AND THE METAMORPHOSIS OF NARCISSUS
Oct 3, 2018 - Feb 24, 2019
Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí are two of the most significant and influential figures of the twentieth century. Dalí was a passionate admirer of the father of psychoanalysis and finally met him in London on July 19th 1938. This year 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of this event.
 
A new exhibition at the Freud Museum will explore the connection between the two men, starting from their one meeting, to which Dalí brought his recently completed painting The Metamorphosis of Narcissus.

PROJECTIONS : CINEMATIC REPRESENTATION
Feb 9, 2019 to 12:00am talk/event
Cinematic representations of mental illness. Intensive Day Course
 
Guy de Maupassant once said, “A sick thought can devour the body’s flesh more than fever or consumption.” Mental illness is one of the leading causes of the overall disease burden worldwide. Depression and anxiety are reported to be among the main drivers of disability in Western countries.
 
The cinema is a chronicler of transformation revealing the soul’s sublime dreams; it is also a useful mode of expression for the pain endured by a fragmented mind. Compared to other art forms, the film medium possesses a unique capacity to showcase the complexity of human emotion, and so occupies a privileged position in conveying the subjective experience of psychological disturbance.
 
In this day course, a selection of films portraying psychiatric diagnoses will be explored, with information provided on the emergence and development of distinct clinical categories including anxiety, depression and psychosis. In addition to in-depth content analysis of visual material, discussions will be held on the role of moving image culture in shaping public perception and social attitudes toward mental disorders.
9 February, 2019, 10:00 am - 5:30 pm
 
£48 - £65
