So this is the Strong Sex: Early Women Psychoanalysts

The Freud Museum London’s upcoming exhibition “So this is the Strong Sex”: Early Women Psychoanalysts explores the lives and work of a number of women from the early history of psychoanalysis. An exciting collaboration with the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, this historically focussed exhibition showcases the major influence Marie Bonaparte, Helene Deutsch, Emma Eckstein, Anna Freud, Lou Andreas-Salomé and Sabina Spielrein had on the work of Sigmund Freud and the development of psychoanalysis.

Using materials from the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna, the show will connect the achievements of these figures with the era in which they lived. Seeking to challenge the idea of psychoanalysis as a science dominated by men, the issues of childcare in Vienna of the 1920s and 1930s, the development of international women’s movements, and core topics of psychoanalysis such as the Oedipus complex, transference and countertransference, sexuality and femininity will be explored.

For the first time ever the Freud Museum London will be exhibiting unpublished letters from Princess Marie Bonaparte, a figure integral to the Freud family’s escape from the Nazis in 1938. Alongside antiquities from Freud’s collection which Bonaparte personally smuggled out of Nazi-occupied Vienna, this opening up of the archive is an exciting opportunity to discover the personal correspondence of Anna and Sigmund Freud, and their most trusted confidantes.

Film screening
In recent years, hardly any other form of art has influenced everyday visual perception as much as animation in its various facets. Tricky Women, an Austrian animation festival, celebrates and presents work by female animators and filmmakers. The Freud Museum London and the Austrian Cultural Forum present a specially curated programme of films from this year’s festival entitled Turbulent Times, Trusted Places.

The programme presents a variety of different animation films and filmmakers, which, in their different ways, contemplate enduring questions around place and space. What is it like to arrive in a new city (Shut up Moon, Gudrun Krebitz) or to explore a city together with magical creatures made of recycled and discarded objects (Taipei Recyclers, Nikki Schuster). Other films explore human emotions such as greed which destroys our social connections as well as environmental consciousness (Princess Disaster Movie, Xenia Ostrovskaya und YACHAY, Anne Zwiener), The effect of loneliness on the periphery (Ginny, Susi Jirkuff); the unpredictability of love (The infatuated cook, Verena Hochleitner & Ulrike Swoboda-Ostermann). While other films tell touching family stories (Garten & Schnaps, Amelie Loy), and how women take control of their own destinies (Two Melons – Birth of an Artist, Ingrid Gaier).

On the occasion of the exhibition ‘So this is the Strong Sex’ Women in Psychoanalysis at the Freud Museum London, we present a programme of films celebrating female artistic production as well as the variety of styles, approaches, techniques and themes within the genre.

NYPSI’s 1026th Scientific Program Meeting
Tuesday, December 12, 2017

8:00 pm

Presenter: Anne Erreich, Ph.D. 
Discussant: Elizabeth Auchincloss, M.D.

In the history of Freud’s thinking, the nature of the patient’s fantasy life became the central interest of psychoanalytic work; thus, psychoanalysis was, by definition, embedded in a model of the mind. In our current era, many psychoanalysts, from Kleinians to Relational analysts, have declared that a science of mind is irrelevant to the psychoanalytic enterprise; both the hermeneutic and post-modern traditions hold that science itself has little or nothing to offer psychoanalysis. Nevertheless, since the 1960’s, questions regarding mental structure and functioning have been successfully pursued in academic developmental and cognitive psychology, which has for some time now, offered support and elaboration for psychoanalytic speculations. Given the virtual absence or irrelevance of psychoanalytic thinking in institutions of higher learning and treatment facilities, there is reason to believe that the future of the psychoanalytic project depends on progress toward a scientific discipline. This paper presentation seeks to promote that effort by offering an updated psychoanalytic metapsychology, one that takes into account decades of recent research in developmental and cognitive psychology, and philosophy of mind.
