Sigmund Freud made numerous private and business trips in his lifetime. To mark the 75th anniversary of his death on 23 September 2014, the exhibition in the Sigmund Freud Museum ranges from Freud's first trip (the relocation) from Pribor to Vienna via his tours to ancient sites in Italy and Greece and a presentation trip to the East Coast of the USA, to his emigration to London. Documents, souvenirs and photographs of his stays can be seen for the first time.

The period from the middle of the 1890s to the beginning of the First World War in 1914 marks the highpoint of Freud's travels. Family holidays lasting several weeks in the Austrian Alps and in Bavaria were usually followed by extended tours accompanied by family members or colleagues. His travels also took him to Croatia, England and the Netherlands. In 1938, he fled with his family from the National Socialists via Paris to London, where he died on 23 September 1939. Freud's holidays as well as travel impressions from childhood influenced the formation of his theories and represent an important factor in the development of psychoanalysis.

The exhibition is also dedicated to two lesser-known family members: Alexander Freud (1866-1943) was considered one of the leading railway experts of the Monarchy and regularly accompanied his brother Sigmund. Harry Freud (1909-1968) was Sigmund's nephew and between 1932 and 1939 traveled to those European cities previously visited by his uncle, in order to document them in photographs.

From 13 to 30 September, the Sigmund Freud Museum shows an exhibition in the public sphere on sixteen City Lights and advertising pillars - with "set pieces" from Freud's life, his work and cross-associations to visual art and literature. On display are photos by Sigmund Freud in conjunction with irritating headlines from his writings. The photographs are alienated in order to irritate; at the same time they function as QR codes and therefore as entry portals into the digital exhibition "Hidden Freud", which provides further information. The pillars can be viewed on Meinradplatz at the Burgtheater, at Stadiongasse 11 at City Hall, in Resselpark, at Mariahilfer Strasse 118, at Berggasse 21 and in Sigmund Freud Park.

And the 21er Haus presents the exhibition “Sigmund Freud in the mirror of contemporary art”, starting with the spatial installation “Zero & Not” by the American concept artist Joseph Kosuth. The ongoing debate about Freud’s theory is manifested in the objects on display - from Franz West to John Baldessari.
