The return of the repressed

22 May

Louise Bourgeois (1911 – 2010) was one of the best known artists of the 20th century, whose work has inspired a rich commentary from academics and critics alike.

Louise Bourgeois: The Return of the Repressed will show original documents from the artist’s recently discovered psychoanalytic writings, as well as drawings and sculptures, in the house of the founding father of psychoanalysis.

The exhibition will raise fundamental questions about the relationship between art and life, and the therapeutic nature of art itself.

The Freud Museum until 27 May 2012
