Celebrating the opening of our winter exhibition,
The Uncanny: A Centenary.

Doppelgängers, objects coming to life, haunting spirits, and death will be taking over the Freud Museum. Over the course of the evening, we will see how Freud’s theory went on to inspire art, film and literature, and you can view the exhibition after hours too!

A schedule of talks and workshops, from horror films to mannequins, will take place all evening.
