Solitary Pleasures

Notes

Created to accompany the Solitary Pleasures exhibition at the Freud Museum, London in Spring 2018, this publication is a secret museum, a treasure trove of insightful and delightful drawings, sculptures, photographs, video stills, artefacts, performative gestures, and ephemera – as well as specially commissioned texts – on a subject at the heart of Freudian and post-Freudian sexuality, eroticism, and desire: masturbation.
