“The apartment is doing well”. The Freuds at Berggasse 19

Special exhibition at the Sigmund Freud Museum, starting 31 January 2017

The exhibition “The apartment is doing well”. The Freuds at Berggasse 19 focuses on the private life of the Freud family at their home in Vienna. Various moves within the building, amalgamations of apartments, and changing uses of rooms over the years have left many traces: letters, original objects and photographs tell of an eventful family history that took place here for almost half a century – from taking up tenancy in 1891 to fleeing to London in 1938.

Quotation-style visualisations of the apartment and its interior from the Gründerzeit period give a sense of middle-class homes and everyday life at the turn of the century, bringing to life the atmosphere that characterised life at Berggasse 19. A dressing table (German: Psyche) belonging to the family is to be presented for the first time: this vanity recently returned to its original site at Berggasse 19 thanks to a generous donation of the Vienna Medical Chamber. The show focuses on the interplay of domestic structures and family relations along with the busy comings and goings at the Freuds’ home, often enough for professional reasons. The exhibition also looks into the question of the extent to which Sigmund and Anna Freud’s personal experience and life influenced their psychoanalytic work.
