UCL Culture Late:
Egyptomania in the time of Freud & Petrie
Not even the founder of psychoanalysis could resist the Egyptomania that gripped European imaginations in the 19th century: Siggy considered himself an archaeologist of the human mind. Discover the source of Freud’s obsession and how ideas of ancient Egyptian sexuality and death influenced his own psyche, while surrounded by thousands of ancient artefacts collected by Petrie during his lifetime.
Enjoy gin cocktails, analyse your dream drawings by Art Macabre, dance to the gramophone crackle of art deco socialite Auntie Maureen, illuminated by visual artist Sal Pittman from Klanghaus, with pop-up talks by experts from UCL and the Freud Museum such as curator Anna Garnett, Egyptologist John J Johnston and researcher Professor Miriam Leonard.
