L'espirit D'escalier - Sharon Kivland


A revised version of a paper given in ‘Outside/In: architecture, psychoanalysis, and spaces in-between’ at the Freud Museum, London, in June 2007, during ‘Architecture Week (Arts Council of England), the text ostensibly pursues the references to domestic architecture in he dreams of Sigmund Freud as a narrative, while the subtext expresses anxiety, loss, and the revisiting of a subjective past—oh, and the forgetting of a lovely pair of shoes, as the author and Freud miss a collision on the stairs of 19 Berggasse, Vienna. The text is punctuated by a series of black and white photographs, taken on the stairs of the same apartment block, as the author searched for her title, her shoes, and her subject.
