Freud, Dalí and the Metamorphosis of Narcissus

open to public
Organizer: Freud Museum London
Venue: Freud Museum London

Sigmund Freud and Salvador Dalí are two of the most significant and influential figures of the twentieth century.
Dalí was a passionate admirer of the father of psychoanalysis and finally met him in London on July 19th 1938. This year 2018 marks the 80th anniversary of this event. A new exhibition at the Freud Museum will explore the connection between the two men, starting from their one meeting, to which Dalí brought his recently completed painting The Metamorphosis of Narcissus.

The painting, on loan from the Tate, will be the central point in the exhibition for an exploration of the extensive influence of Freud on Dalí and on Surrealism. Also considered will be Freud’s own attitude to painting, illuminated by his response to this encounter with Dalí.

Dalí had read The Interpretation of Dreams as an art student in Madrid in the early 1920s. This was, he wrote, “one of the capital discoveries of my life, and I was seized with a real vice of self-interpretation, not only of my dreams but of everything that happened to me.” This passion for self-interpretation took not just visual but also written form. In 1933 Dalí wrote a “psycho-analytical essay”, as he described it, on the famous painting by Jean-François Millet, The Angelus. The essay was eventually published as a book, The Tragic Myth of Millet’s ‘Angelus’. In it, Dalí explores his own obsession with the painting, which he lays out in the form of a Freudian case history.

In 1938, after several attempts, Dalí finally met his hero Freud, newly arrived in London after fleeing from Nazi-occupied Vienna. The meeting was brokered by Stefan Zweig, who was present, together with Dalí’s friend and patron Edward James, who owned The Metamorphosis of Narcissus. Dalí hoped his painting would allow him to engage Freud in a discussion of the psychoanalytical theory of Narcissism and would help him to demonstrate his concept of critical paranoia.

Dali was given permission to sketch Freud during the visit. These drawings, now in the Fundacio Gala-Salvador Dalí in Spain, will be on display, and Dali’s long poem with the same title as the painting, The Metamorphosis of Narcissus. There will also be material from the Freud Museum’s archive and collections, shedding light on Freud’s attitude to Dalí and their meeting.

Other themes of the exhibition will include the classical origins of the myth of Narcissus and the place of narcissism in psychoanalytic thinking. Freud’s own collections will play a part. For example, they include a copy of the classical relief Gradiva; Freud’s study of Wilhelm Jensen’s novel Gradiva was the inspiration for some of Dalí’s important paintings and drawings on this theme from the early 1930s.

Through images, including original paintings and drawings, photographs and prints, and documents including letters, manuscripts, books and Freud’s appointment diary, the intense – if somewhat one-sided -relationship between two extraordinary thinkers and creators will be explored.

The exhibition will be curated by the distinguished art historian Dawn Ades, curator of the recent highly successful Dali/Duchamp exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a catalogue, and an exciting public programme, which will include lectures and debates on topics including Narcissism, the relationship between art and psychoanalysis through Freud’s writings on Leonardo and Michelangelo, Freud and surrealism, psychoanalysis and classicism, and Lacan’s debt to Dalí’s critical paranoia.

PROJECTIONS: Erotic Cinema

Since the first kiss was documented on film in 1896, erotic cinema has titillated viewers and outraged repressed moralists.
The depiction of sexuality can have a pronounced effect on character development, shaping the direction of a film’s central themes. Sigmund Freud believed that “the behaviour of a human being in sexual matters is often a prototype for the whole of their other modes of reaction in life.” We respond to provocative content that ‘turns us on’; risqué scenes make the heart beat faster and ignite the imagination. Psychoanalysts regard sexuality as the key to understanding how the mind works; “no one who disdains the key will ever be able to unlock the door,” Freud warned.

Eros, the Ancient Greek word for romantic love, is tantamount to the life instinct in psychoanalysis, constituting the pleasures of the flesh, procreation, survival, productivity and the desire to unite with others. Early on, Freud defined erotic impulses as being opposed by the Ego. But later, in Beyond The Pleasure Principle (1920), he placed Eros in contrast to the so-called ‘death wish’: repetition, aggression, a masochistic need to sabotage what we love, and the compulsion to return to an inorganic state (i.e., Thanatos).

The simultaneously binding and clashing forces of sex and death together form an entwined dual system that is the source of all creation. PROJECTIONS: Erotic Cinema is a 6-week course exploring this paradoxical tension in eroticism, tracing its manifestation in moving image, from unbridled passions to destructive urges, via deviant practices, to a more diverse and inclusive representation of romance, culminating in a study of modern technology’s impact on the realm of the senses.

Advance viewing is optional, bespoke montages will be shown during weekly sessions (see filmography below):

Week 1: EROS

Sex and Lucía (2001), 9 Songs (2004), Love (2015)

PROJECTIONS is psychoanalysis for film interpretation. PROJECTIONS empowers film spectators to express subjective associations they consider to be meaningful. Expertise in psychoanalytic theory is not necessary – the only prerequisite is the desire to enter and inhabit the imaginary world of film, which is itself a psychoanalytic act. MARY WILD, a Freudian cinephile from Montreal, is the creator of PROJECTIONS.

Consciousness from philosophical and neuropsychoanalytic viewpoints

The Israeli Forum of Neuropsychoanalysis in collaboration with the Division of Neurology, Tel Aviv Medical Center and The Israeli Psychological Association invite you to next year’s conference.

In the first from a series of conferences on consciousness we will look at this topic from various viewpoints with an emphasis on clinical implications.

The Neuropsychoanalytic endeavor in Israel has been going on for over 20 years led by Irith Barzel-Raveh along with a dedicated transdisciplinary group who are devoted to research and learning, while striving to make clinical contributions in this effort. In this conference we will look at fundamental questions regarding consciousness: How quantity becomes quality? How is the neuronal activity translated into a Mind? We hope that bringing together neuroscientific knowledge and integrating it with psychoanalytic models and philosophical thinking will help us look at this questions, update our insights, and advance the way we work as clinicians.

The conference will include keynote talks given by Prof. Mark Solms, the founder of Neuropsychoanalysis, whose current research is centered around consciousness. There will also be keynote talks by Prof. Shimon Marom, Dr. Yochai Ataria, Prof. Amir Horowitz and others.

The conference will also include a clinical case presentation followed by a discussion by clinicians and theoreticians from various disciplines, trying to examine the clinical relevance of the broad perspective presented.

The conference will take place in the conference hall in Sami Offer building in Tel Aviv Medical Center.

Per chi lo desiderasse, sarà anche possibile prendere parte a una breve visita guidata dell’Ateneo.

PROGRAMMA
Ingresso e presentazione

Cosa caratterizza la Sigmund Freud University? In quale modo si collegano insegnamento e attività pratica all’interno del Corso di Laurea Triennale in Psicologia? Scopri il nostro percorso formativo personalizzato e orientato alla professione.

Lezione aperta
“Epigenetica, neuroni e psicologia” (Dott. Mattia Ferro).

I recenti sviluppi nelle ricerche in epigenetica e nelle tecniche di ingegneria genetica ad oggi permettono di portare avanti una ricerca che possa essere sempre più approfondita riguardo le patologie psichiatriche studiate nei modelli animali, garantendoci la possibilità di esplorare nuove frontiere della psicologia, muovendoci, così, dalla ricerca di base di laboratorio alla ricerca clinica e al paziente.

Lezione aperta
“Attaccamento e interazioni precoci del bambino” (Dott. Walter Sapuppo).

Il bambino, sin dai primi mesi di vita, appare come un organismo attivo, dotato di capacità di riconoscimento degli stimoli e predisposto all’ interazione con il mondo. In questo processo il caregiver ricopre un ruolo fondamentale nel favorire e “guidare” tale interazione. Durante l’intervento verrà illustrato il paradigma teorico di riferimento con particolare attenzione ai comportamenti di regolazione del contatto sociale nelle prime fasi di vita.
