Created to accompany the Solitary Pleasures exhibition at the Freud Museum, London in Spring 2018, this publication is a secret museum, a treasure trove of insightful and delightful drawings, sculptures, photographs, video stills, artefacts, performative gestures, and ephemera – as well as specially commissioned texts by artists, academics, educators, and critical writers – on a subject at the heart of Freudian and post-Freudian sexuality, eroticism, and desire: masturbation.
It includes contributions from Shannon Bell, Lee Edelman, VALIE EXPORT, Chantal Faust, Sigmund Freud, Antony Gormley, Dominic Johnson, Wayne Koestenbaum, Thomas W. Laqueur, Jordan McKenzie, Susie Orbach, Emily Pope, Adrian Rifkin, Charan Singh, Marquard Smith, Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens, Emma Talbot, Cosey Fanni Tutti, Ivan Ward, and Michelle Williams Gamaker.
Please note that Solitary Pleasures is now out of print. The text is available as a PDF for the reduced price of £7.50.
