Basel, Switzerland… For Art Basel 2021, Luxembourg + Co.’s presentation will explore the contribution of Sigmund Freud’s thought to modern and post-war art. Taking its point of departure from a portrait of Freud painted by Gerhard Richter in 1971, the booth will include works that engage with the unconscious mind as well as repressed desires and their manifestations in art of the last century. The display will range from important early works by artists of the European Avant-garde from the turn of the century with Joan Mirò, Felix Nussbaum and Man Ray and continue to explore expressions of sublimated sexuality, violence and dreamwork in the practice of postwar artists such as Balthus, Lucio Fontana, Pino Pascali, César, and Franz West.
