11 March 2015 - 12 April 2015Where we are now
Psychoanalytic research in the 21st century
This new exhibition explores how psychoanalytic ideas are currently used in research which engages with very contemporary issues and the challenges of the modern world. The pieces are by six young artists from the Slade School of Fine Art, who have been commissioned to produce work that contests misconceptions and clichés about psychoanalytic research, and emphasises the discipline’s relevance to twenty-first century life.See details >>
30 April 2015 - 7 June 2015Freud the Physician
Organised jointly by the Royal Society of Medicine and the Freud Museum London, this exhibition will explore and celebrate the pre-psychoanalytical career of Sigmund Freud. Long before Freud coined the term psychoanalysis in 1896 and developed a profound new body of psychological theory and technique, he had distinguished himself as a young scientific researcher and physician. Between 1876 and 1895, Freud made numerous contributions to various branches of medicine and biology, including, physiology, anatomy, histology, anaesthetics, paediatrics, and neurology.
The exhibition will include a display of rare books, unpublished letters, certificates, and journals from the collections of the RSM Library and the Freud Museum.See details >>
