CONFLICT AND CULTURE
Following its recent showing at the Library of Congress, Sigmund Freud: Conflict and Culture, a major exhibition examining the life and work of one of this century' S most remarkable and influential figures, will open at The Jewish Museum on April 18 and remain on view through September 9, 1999. Few figures have had as decisive and fundamental an influence on the course of modern cultural history as Sigmund Freud. Yet few figures also have inspired such sustained controversy and intense debate. The exhibition will underscore the contested legacies of Freud and show how notions of the self, including identity, memory, childhood, repression and sexuality, have been shaped in relation to Freud's work. Sigmund Freud: Conflict and Culture features vintage photographs, prints, manuscripts and first editions, home movies of Freud and objects from his study and consulting room. Approximately 180 film and television clips, and selections from newspapers, magazines and comic books are included in the exhibition to highlight the pervasive influence of psychoanalysis on popular culture. The exhibition was organized by the Library of Congress in cooperation with the Sigmund Freud-Museum, Vienna, and the Freud Museum, London. Following its New York showing, the exhibition will travel to Vienna, Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, and Chicago.
