Every piece of dust on Freud's couch
For Every piece of dust on Freud’s couch, commissioned by the Freud Museum, Broomberg & Chanarin hired a police forensic team to scrutinise Sigmund Freud’s iconic couch, gathering DNA samples, strands of hair and a multitude of dust particles left by his home’s many visitors. These may include traces of Freud’s early patients such as ‘Dora’, the ‘Wolf Man’ and others, as well as those of more mundane visitors, mainly tourists, who have travelled from around the world to visit this legendary item of furniture.

||VIRTUAL PSYCHOANALYTIC MUSEUM
We invite you to enter the VIRTUAL PSYCHOANALYTIC MUSEUM for a new experience of psychoanalytic understanding. Our Grand Opening features three topical galleries (Space and Time | The Body | Film),
along with descriptions of how to enjoy and participate. We are using
a variety of media to help bring forth the vitality of
psychoanalytic thought and clinical work.
The Three Galleries
Space and Time
curated by Batya Monder with Nancy R. Goodman. Exhibitions are by Nancy
R. Goodman, Antonino Ferro, Desy Safan-Gerard, and Batya Monder’s
narratives about space and time include contributions from Calvin
Settlage, Robert S. Wallerstein, Thomas H. Ogden, & Gerald Fogel. Space and Time relate to the interior
of the mind and to the interior of a museum. In both we find timeless
works of art and unconscious fantasies that need containment to be held
securely. Both the contemporary and the ancient reside within the
spaces of mind and museum.
curated by Paula L. Ellman. Exhibitions with commentary and images from
Janice Lieberman, Ellen Sinkman, Marsha H. Levy- Warren, and Calli Ryan. Freud told us that the body is the
first ego and clinicians recognize that the soma and psyche are
intimately connected both in pleasure and in pain. The exhibitions tell
and show the way beauty, pain, and injury directly impact experience of
living in a body communicating to self and other.
Film, Lars and the Real Girl, curated by Marilyn B. Meyers with exhibition commentaries from Noa Ashman, George Halasz and Marilyn B. Meyers. This film is a moving and compelling
story reminding us all of the importance of attachment, grief, and
reparation. Film clips and discussions help reveal the inner life of
Lars and indeed, all of us.
