Book now! PROJECTIONS: The Uncanny in Cinema.
Online course with Mary Wild.

In this webinar series, we will explore the uncanny through the medium of film, locating the oddness in the ordinary via the remarkable capacity of moving image to stage ambivalence and uneasiness. Freud said that the uncanny is the only feeling that is more powerfully experienced in art than in life, and so we shall examine cinematic representations of the concept within three essential categories (The Dream, The Home, The Self), all of which give rise to a sense of reassurance whilst also provoking a suppressed primordial fear and unnerving confusion.

17-19 July 2-4pm
A recording will be made available to ticket holders for 10 days after the event.

Excited to have the German version of my book "Fifty Shrinks" published in 2014 featuring psychotherapists of various stripes in their New York offices presented by Kohlhammer Verlag at the Frankfurter Buchmesse
something true from Transylvania?
Hi, what exhibition is coming up after the Egypt one?
While still part of the EU, the Freud family should seek an injunction against what they are currently doing at Berggasse 19 in Vienna. I was lied to by a person in their employ who took 18 Euros from me after she specifically said (in German) I would find Freud's own books on shelves down the street. I instead found shameless kitsch and another woman who told me all of his books went with him to London! When the museum reopens after current renovations, maybe demand that they include explanations of where all of the stuff in it came from, what the 1930s criminal government of Austria stole, how it ended back there (assuming it did) and give a detailed account of what it was like for an old couple and family to be driven out like criminals, have their friends and family murdered, and then have the daughter agree many years later to make misrepresentations of this gruesome history for 9 Euro a head and sell stupid kitsch of her father (if she did agree to this.) If she did not, then what are they doing?
Hi. I was wondering if this is a real picture of Freud? https://i.pinimg.com/originals/fb/c6/e6/fbc6e6b92db2968c655b625cfd4e7371.jpg
Freud a-t-il jamais visité Thebes ou Delphes ? Si oui, a-t-il écrit quelques chose sur ce voyage ?
