Aug 7 - Oct 27, 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.

THE UNCANNY : A CENTENARY
Oct 30, 2019 - Feb 9, 2020
This year marks 100 years since Sigmund Freud wrote his paper on The Uncanny. A theory that went on to inspire art, film, literature and further psychoanalytic enquiry.
 
The Freud Museum’s exhibition celebrates Freud’s essay and explores its legacy. Elizabeth Dearnley, lili Spain, Martha Todd and Karolina Urbaniak & Martin Bladh have made new artworks exploring the uncanny which may make you feel a little unsettled… Alongside these new works will be several etchings by German Surrealist Hans Bellmer.
