´The Best Possible School´: Anna Freud, Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham and the Hietzing School in 1920s Vienna

05/10/2017 - 07/16/2017

Venue: Freud Museum London

Modernism, creativity, the freedom to grow as a “free and self-reliant human being” – with these beliefs, Anna Freud, the youngest daughter of Sigmund Freud, and Dorothy Tiffany Burlingham, the youngest daughter of the great American artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, founded Vienna’s Hietzing School.

To Erik H. Erikson who taught there, it was “the best possible school” and today its true significance, as both the teachers and the students remember it, comes to life in a dynamic new exhibit at the Freud Museum London.

Four historic photographs of Sigmund Freud are on view for the first time, along with original paintings and over 75 vintage pictures from private collections in Europe and America. Notable drawings, manuscripts and autographs make vivid the founders’ vision of the Hietzing School’s origins and sequels, its day-to-day experience and its enduring influence on our understanding of education and the developing mind.

The Freud Museum thanks the Botsiber Institute for Austrian-American Studies, the Zukunftsfond of the Republic of Austria, and the Anna Freud Foundation for their support.

Within our cultures of extremity, of illusion and individualistic pursuits, we increasingly face realities that we find hard to think about.

The fear of feeling void, the demand for omniscience, the desire for violating the mind, everyday "fascistic practises", morbid anxieties and destructive behaviors are all acting as preconditions of the unthinkable. They effectively immobilise thought´s natural flow or make its use operational. These effects are not just the result of a certain individual “psychopathology”; they arise rather from our relation with the other, the social and reality. Is our contemporary paralysis of mind inevitable? Is it really possible to continue to think and remain the subjects of our own lives? Join us to discuss current psychoanalytic thinking about the potential for thoughtfulness.

ABSTRACTS

Elizabeth Cotton
Hanna Arendt: Unthinking Politics and Fascist Blocking of Thought
A contribution about the seduction of unthinking politics and certainty of thought in the current political climate. Using Hanna Arendt’s ideas about radical thoughtlessness and the nature of activism, the discussion will raise the question about the potential for psychoanalytic understanding and practice to counter everyday fascistic practices and build a relational solidarity within society.

David Morgan
Nameless Dread - Somatic Manifestations of the Unthinkable and the Use of the Other
We all have to face the unthinkable and that includes finitude and the fear of the void. In a world of apparent endless possibilities, the body and new technology, can be employed to obviate these facts. Current approaches to gender, sexuality and the use of the other will be explored in this context.

It´s important to acknowledge how important it is to be open minded but not so open minded that your brain fall out!

Daniella Angueli
Violating the Mind
Distortion of thinking processes or even their abolition, is never a private matter; it arises in inter-subjective relations. It has to do -among other things- with a negation of autonomy or even a desire of annihilation of the subjectivity. It entails the relation of a human being with “lack”, with alterity, uncertainty, trauma and death. "Violating the mind" originates from contexts that dictate omnipotence or omniscience. It appears as a symptom of idealisation of power, knowledge or the other. Idealisation “fetishises” the other or the subject themselves. Entangled in its nets, the subject is being used as an object, an instrument. And instruments do not think. A human being as an instrument, that is unthinkable.

Christos Tombras
Βody and the Limits of Language: Articulating the Unthinkable
Human beings are speaking beings. It has been suggested that the limits of our world are the limits of our language. Indeed as the praxis of psychoanalysis reveals, to speak means to reach out, to relate. By speaking we partake in a world created by our discourse. And yet, we suffer as bodies. Panic attacks, morbid anxieties, addictions, self-destructive behaviours, all these “modern” types of suffering, do not but reflect the limits of our language: they delineate the realm of the unthinkable -that is, the realm of what cannot be spoken about. A small clinical vignette will be used as an illustration of what our challenge as clinicians is, namely to articulate the unthinkable.

Der Traum und die Psychoanalyse. Das ist der Obertitel der psychoanalytischen Ringvorlesung

Jeden Donnerstag erwarten Sie spannende Vorträge; Veranstaltungsort ist die Hamburger Universität. Der Eintritt ist kostenfrei.

Der Dichter als Tagträumer. Ulrich Mosers Traumtheorie der psychischen Mikrowelten und die poetischen Mikrowelten bei Wilhelm Genazino.
Esther Grundmann
Tübingen Literaturwissenschaftlerin und Philosophin in freier Praxis

Ulrich Moser hat das Konzept der psychischen Mikrowelten im Rahmen seiner Traumtheorie entwickelt, später aber auch auf Fragen der Poetik bezogen (z.B. Moser 2000, 2005 und 2016). Der Beitrag wendet Mosers Konzept der psychischen Mikrowelten auf Romanauszüge von Wilhelm Genazino an („Ein Regenschirm für diesen Tag“, „Das Glück in glücksfernen Zeiten“) und überprüft die Ergiebigkeit dieses Ansatzes. Versteht man den Dichter als Tagträumer, wie dies beispielhaft in Genazinos Romanen geschieht, dann ist diese Verknüpfung keine zufällige: Beide Autoren richten ihr Augenmerk auf die Ausbildung von psychischen resp. kreativen Prozessen und verweisen dabei vor allem auf die Bedeutung von visuellen Eindrücken für die Ausbildung imaginärer Mikrowelten, was in diesem Vortrag exemplarisch gezeigt werden soll. Dies führt abschließend zu der Frage, ob Mosers Konzept der psychischen Mikrowelten nicht ein guter Kandidat für eine Poetologie sein könnte
