Portrait de Sigmund Freud, 12 février 1932

Sigmund Freud. From looking to listening

From Wednesday 10 October 2018 until Sunday 10 February 2019

To mark its twentieth anniversary, the mahJ is devoting an exhibition – the first of its kind in France – to Sigmund Freud (1856-1939). With more than two hundred paintings, drawings, prints, books, objects and scientific instruments – including major works by Gustave Courbet, Gustav Klimt, René Magritte and Mark Rothko – Jean Clair, the exhibition’s curator, is proposing a fresh insight into the intellectual and scientific development of the inventor of psychoanalysis and the influence of Judaism.

David Perlov (1930-2003) is one of the key figures of Israeli cinema in the last quarter of the 20th century. Yet the scope of his oeuvre, sustained by his lifelong practice of drawing and photography, extends far beyond his work as a filmmaker.
