“Violence in Comics” exhibition

Article publié le 19 June 2023

From 20 October 2023 at the Sigmund Freud Museum

The Sigmund Freud Museum’s new special exhibition is devoted to comics. It presents the variety of methods and aesthetic alternatives used to represent individual and collective experiences of violence. Comic strips are illuminating for psychoanalysis, presenting the unfathomable and the unpronounceable – and they can be useful for opening up new perspectives on these experiences, and thus for treating trauma. The exhibition looks at the Shoah, war, sexualised violence, displacement and migration, and teenage experiences of violence.
