HIDDEN THOUGHTS OF A VISUAL NATURE
Sigmund Freud Museum Contemporary Art Collection
Opening: 17 November 2017, 12 midday
The science of psychoanalysis has always held a great fascination for artists – both as a medium for reflection and as an instrument for creating meaning, and “Freud’s cultural work” (Thomas Mann) remains a popular subject for many contemporary artists too: similar to how images in dreams visualise hidden thoughts, artistic formulations probe the depths and meanings of our current cultural self-perception, depicting the forces that shape the individual and the collective unconscious. The works in the Sigmund Freud Museum’s collection of conceptual art furnish impressive evidence of this fact.
