From Psychoanalysis to Art. Artworks on Display in Siena

The event, on display in the amazing halls of Museum Complex Santa Maria della Scala in Siena, suggests an artistic itinerary in a class by itself, analyzing an accurate selection of about 200 artworks (among watercolors, India ink drawings, woodcuts and etchings), in the psychoanalytic movement introduced by Freud.

The exhibition suggests a new way to look at the artwork and to the artist through the Lens of Freud. The artworks speak, explain on their own the cultural and anthropological content that produced them, and invite the exhibition’s visitors to a new interpretation.

Freud, the philosopher universally recognized as the father of Psychoanalysis, was in fact the first to associate the psychoanalytic method to the study and interpretation of art and creativity, as expression of unconscious, obviously dwelling upon the role of the artist into the process of reproduction of the will and unconscious representations.

Explaining that, it really seems to be difficult and incomprehensible, but the exhibition will be made up of a “guided tour”, which will start from the critical reading and the psychoanalysis made by some of the most respected specialists in the sector, of the 200 artworks chosen for the exhibition.

“The lens of Freud. A Gallery of unconscious” awaits you until 22nd February at the Museum Complex Santa Maria della Scala in Siena.
