Taking Freud’s 1919 text ‘Das Unheimliche’ (‘The Uncanny’) as point of departure, this presentation seeks to identify what subsists, what survives when a house turns into a museum: the ghosts of its former occupants, the archive (once a personal collection of papers, books, memorabilia), and a sense (reassuring or unsettling) of domesticity.

This talk is part of the Museum’s 25th anniversary programme and was recorded at the Anna Freud Centre on Wednesday 21st September 2011.
