Freud and Egypt: Between Oedipus and the Sphinx - 12/10/2019, London (England)

Egypt played a prominent role in Freud’s personal life and writings. From his childhood encounter with the Phillipson Bible, through his psychobiography of Leonardo da Vinci (in which the Egyptian goddess Mut becomes a key to the artist’s sexual and creative identity) to his final work Moses and Monotheism in which he makes the scandalous claim that Moses was not a Jew but an Egyptian. Accompanying the exhibition at the Freud Museum in London, this conference explores the themes of Egyptomania, sexuality, death and psychoanalysis.

FECHA/DATE/DATA: 12/10/2019

LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: The Freud Museum, 20 Maresfield Gardens, (London, England)
