    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The photo series Gradiva is a key work in Victor Burgin’s oeuvre. With it, the artist (b. 1941 in Sheffield, England) decisively set a tone as a representative of conceptual art and as a photo theoretician. Produced in 1982, Gradiva is part of a well-known group of works, Tales from Freud, and consequently one of the first works in which Burgin falls back on psychoanalytical concepts to investigate questions about the constitution of the subject. Sigmund Freud’s theories on the meanings of dreams, on the mechanisms of the unconscious, on sexuality and on subject formation play an essential role.

    An image section, work commentaries, and extensive lists of publications and exhibitions enhance Alexander Streitberger’s knowledgeable analysis of this photo and textual work series.
