Lecture at Freud Museum: “Freud’s Uncanny Interior”

November 20, 2017

Freud Lecture 2500x1570

Joel Sanders is lecturing at the Sigmund Freud Museum in Vienna. The lecture, titled “Freud’s Uncanny Interior,” will focus on an overlooked aspect of Berggasse 19, the pivotal role Freud’s eccentric but carefully staged domestic interior played in shaping the audio/visual encounter between doctor and patient, a spatial experience that effectively blurred the boundaries between public and private, personal and professional, art and everyday life.

The lecture will draw on Sanders’ essay with Diana Fuss, “Berggasse 19: Inside Freud’s Office”, originally published in his book Stud: Architectures of Masculinity (Princeton Architectural Press, 1996) and reprinted in Toward A New Interior: An Anthology of Interior Design Theory (Princeton Architectural Press, 2011).

The lecture is part of the programme accompanying the Sigmund Freud Museum’s special exhibition “The apartment is doing well”. The Freuds at Berggasse 19, and will take place on Tuesday, November 21st at 8pm at the Sigmund Freud Museum.
