The Case Histories

  • 23 November 2016 — 19 February 2017 *on now

Martin Wilner is an artist, psychiatrist and scholar in psychoanalysis based in New York. The Freud Museum presents Wilner’s first solo museum exhibition, drawing on his decades of artistic work pertinent to the practice and thinking around psychoanalysis.

The Case Histories are the latest iteration of Wilner’s ongoing Making History project begun in 2002. Wilner, in the first decade of this process, rendered daily drawings based upon events in the world of interest to him. Over the course of each month elements of representation, portraiture, caricature, cartography, typography, micrography, and musical composition coalesce into the resulting work.

Psychoanalysis after Freud

  • 19 January — 6 April 2017

Tutor: Keith Barrett BA PhD

Psychoanalysis was initiated by Freud, then transformed by a series of powerful creative figures who both extended and deepened its range, opening new intellectual horizons as they applied its methods to new problems and new fields. We will focus on four leading innovators, carefully examining their criticisms of Freud and the manner in which they modified his theories and therapeutic practice. In this way, the course will give an overview of the development of psychoanalysis across its first century and into the beginning of its second. While intended to be accessible to beginners, it will also stimulate those who already have some knowledge of the field.

(The course is self-contained – as is ‘Introducing Freud at the Freud Museum’ which precedes it in the autumn term. The two courses can be taken in either order, or as ‘stand alone’ modules, but complete beginners wanting a thorough introduction to psychoanalysis should take ‘Introducing Freud’ first, then follow on with the present course.)
