Morra, Joanne (2016) The Multiplicity Within: Freud’s Antiquities, Hiller’s Fragments. In: Im/Material: Encounters within the Creative Arts Archive, 13-14 May 2016, Chelsea College of Arts, 16 John Islip Street, London SW1P 4JU.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Morra, Joanne

An analysis of Freud's antiquities and their relationship to his psychoanalytic ideas around archaeology as a metaphor for understanding the human subject and the process of psychoanalysis as a therapeutic. This is invoked by looking at Susan Hiller's At the Freud Museum (1994), a site-responsive installation held at the Freud Museum London.

The Multiplicity Within

Speakers: Dr. Joanne Morra and Dr. Fiona Candlin

Chair: Judy Willcocks

Small museums have a unique capacity to critique and contest traditional notions of curating.

Looking in detail at the Freud Museum and the Lurgan History Museum, Morra and Candlin will discuss the motivations and methodologies of collecting. They will also look at the process of establishing history, memory and mythology through material objects.

While seemingly quite different, the collections of these two museums both seek to represent a wider movement. In the case of the Freud Museum, psychoanalysis, and in the case of the Lurgan History Museum, Irish Republicanism.

Candlin and Morra will use these structures to explore how each venue offers alternative perspectives and practices to those found in major institutions.
