Art, Identity and the Unconscious in the Age of TransNationalism

International Conference & Film Programme

organized by The Freud Museum and Slade School of Art

In an era of globalisation and 'mutli-culturalism' how do artists explore the reality of racial and cultural differences, the legacy of colonialism and the continuing persistence of stereotypes? This conference and the film screening which preceded it, explored the ambiguities of transnationalism, and the effects of history and desire in the construction of a 'postmodern' identity.
