Moving Freud: Parallel Actions

In 2018, the Sigmund Freud Museum explored the relationship between Sigmund Freud and central writers of his time. The special exhibition PARALLEL ACTIONS. Freud and the Writers of Young Vienna reveals the traces left by psychoanalysis in the work of Arthur Schnitzler, Karl Kraus, Hugo von Hofmannsthal and Felix Salten. Each author was assigned his own item of furniture which was turned into an exhibition display that demonstrated by showing selected writings, works and letters the major influence of Freud’s theory on them. During the renovation of the Sigmund Freud Museum at Berggasse 19 from March 2019 to May 2020, the exhibition displays can be visited at four locations in Vienna:

In the moving freud museum (part II) at Liechtensteinstraße 19, the presentation on Felix Salten, who lived in close vicinity to Sigmund Freud, is on display. The exhibition case on Arthur Schnitzler - a physician by profession, just like Freud - is housed by the Ärztekammer für Wien (Medical Chamber for Vienna) in the Gerard van Swieten room in the Inner City. With the Bezirksmuseum Landstraße (Museum of Vienna’s 3rd district), a fitting location was found for the cabinet about Hugo von Hofmannsthal, who grew up in this part of Vienna. Karl Kraus, who had his apartment in the fourth district, is the subject of the exhibition element at the VHS polycollege Margarten/Wieden at Johannagasse, close to his former home.
