24 June, 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Free with admission
For the discontent of our times we propose a marathon reading of Freud’s Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego.
First published in 1921, the text raises questions about the role of the leader today, tribalism, the triumph of modern masses, and what separates the individual from his or her subjectivity and lived history.
This event will breathe fresh life into this classic text and help both readers and listeners to think about our own era in the beautiful context of Freud’s final home on the 80th anniversary of his arrival in London.
The event is part of the ‘Weekend of Discontent’ at the Freud Museum. It is free with admission on a first come, first served basis. If you prefer, please buy a ticket for the whole weekend HERE. There are no specific tickets and audience members can come and go as they please. This is a staged reading and interactive performance.
Reading: 1pm – 4:30pm
Discussion: 4:30pm – 6pm
