About the VIENNA SHOWCASE:
The reopened Sigmund Freud Museum
The significant value that the physician and neurologist Freud attributed to the arts with regard to the representation of psychological states of mind has often been confirmed by medical and psychological research in recent decades. Similarly, psychological and especially psychoanalytical insights provide suitable starting points for artistic debate in the current day. Thus, the approaches of art and psychoanalysis focus on individual and collective states of existence with the intention of revealing, interpreting and working on their causes and effects.
Panel discussion: Art, Analysis & Public Health
Against the background of current social and political developments, representatives of art, culture and psychoanalysis speak about the potential for enlightenment and relief that can be opened up by artistic ways of thinking and procedures.
