Smoke and Mirrors: The Psychology of Magic at The Wellcome Collection

What can magic and conjuring tell us about the human mind? This exhibition brings together the worlds of psychology and entertainment in search of the truth about deception. Explore how our biases affect our perception and whether our senses can be hacked. Discover spirit photography, magic props and psychology experiments to see how magic works on – and in – the mind of the spectator.

Artefacts on display from the world of magic include the head of the gorilla costume worn by Derren Brown, Harry Houdini’s ‘Bell Box’, Tommy Cooper’s fez, and Paul Daniels’s sawing-in-half box.

 

Smoke and Mirrors

 

Freud’s Goddesses at Freud Museum London

Sunday, 2 - 3pm

Freud’s texts and his collection of antiquities are replete with forceful female presences. As he drew parallels between ancient mythology and early childhood, early goddesses are often compared or conflated with mothers. Through discussing some of the goddesses that attracted Freud’s admiration and awe, this talk aims to throw new light on what Freud called the “dark continent” of woman.

After a Sunday walk through the “stubble fields” of Winchester in September 1819, Keats wrote one of his most famous poems, To Autumn. Join us 200 years later for a special selection of poems inspired by the season, read by the Keats House Poetry Ambassadors.
