‘A Surreal Christmas’ – TBIH2020 Interview
In 2019, we received fantastic news that our annual Shop Christmas video from 2018 had won the prestigious ‘Museums In Short’ Jury Prize – the ‘Oscars’ of the museum world!
Entitled ‘A Surreal Christmas’, the video celebrated the historic meeting between Sigmund Freud and the artist Salvador Dalí in London in 1938, which was the focus of the Freud Museum’s blockbuster winter 2018/19 exhibition, ‘Freud, Dalí and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus’. The video featured the special range of exhibition-related gifts exclusive to the Freud Museum Shop. Produced by our in-house designer, Karolina Urbaniak, the film demonstrated stop-start animation with dadaist soundtrack, inspired by Terry Gilliam’s work on the Monty Python series.
