The Wolf Man: Psychoanalytical Inspirations Today
02.12.2014 at 6 pm
On Tuesday 2 December at 6 pm you are invited to attend a session devoted to Sergei Pankejeff, a famous patient of Sigmund Freud.
The case study described by Freud in his From the History of an Infantile Neurosis gave rise to the comic strip: The Wolf Man: Graphic Freud, drawn by Sława Harasymowicz and with the script by Richard Appignanesi, a popular British author of books on Freud. During the session we will be looking at the reasons why the early 20th-century history still fires our imaginations and inspires today’s artists.
With: Sława Harasymowicz, Edyta Biernacka and Bartosz Puk.
Hosted by: Elżbieta Sala
