Why War? Exhibition



I wonder if you asked Freud why we have wars, what his answer would be. Are they due to some kind of sexual repression that brings out our aggressive side? But instead of guessing or making up theories, there is a far more accurate way to find out. Between the 6th August - 19th October, The Freud Museum is holding a Why War? exhibition. It focusses on the correspondence between Albert Einstein and Sigmund Freud, who discussed the subject of war and questioned whether it was possible to avoid it.

For Freud, the subject of war was one of more than just scientific curiosity; it was also personal, as he had three sons serving on the front line.

As part of the exhibit, you will get to read Freud's writings and view work by his great-grand daughter, Jane McAdam Freud , as well as Gabrielle Rifkind and the East London Printmakers . In addition, there will be a selection of poetry by the Young Poets Network , who took up the challenge to respond to the exhibition.

Entry to the museum is £7 for adults, £5 seniors, £4 concessions, and free for under 12s.
