Artists interpret the archives of the legendary psychoanalysis journal

Founded by British analyst (and Freud biographer) Ernest Jones with the collaboration of Sigmund Freud in 1920, The International Journal of Psychoanalysis has remained the main international vehicle for psychoanalysis. On the occasion of its centenary, artists Simon Moretti and Goshka Macuga have created a presentation of the origins and life of the journal with archival material, alongside contemporary artworks and pieces of the museum’s collection.

The book gathers texts and artworks relating the prehistory of the journal, the hidden role of women in its early years, its beginnings and connections with the Bloomsbury Group, and the influence of classical art and culture on Freud’s ideas and the visual identity of the journal. Taking its title from the 1911 painting by Giorgio de Chirico, it focuses on themes central to both psychoanalysis and art, such as translation, transformation, temporality, metaphors, dreams and the unconscious.

Artists include: Linder, Daniel Silver, Paloma Varga Weisz, Duncan Grant, Barbara Ker-Seymer with John Banting and Rodrigo Moynihan, Simon Moretti, Goshka Macuga and Sergei Pankejeff.
