Join distinguished art historian and curator, Dawn Ades as she discusses her latest exhibition ‘Freud, Dali and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus’ with psychoanalyst Darian Leader.
Lisa Appignanesi discusses her new book, ‘Everyday Madness: on Grief, Anger, Loss and Love’ (September 2018) with Adam Phillips.
Freud’s use of myth to explain aspects of the psyche and his concept of the ‘omnipotence of thought’ opened doors for the surrealists to conduct their own explorations of magic and mythology.
In this course, we will explore the overlap between the psychoanalytic method and surrealist cinema – two disciplines that insist on the supremacy of the unconscious, working through absurd dream logic, calling out the banality and hypocrisy of so-called civilised society.
