Cover title.
"Prior to the family's evacuation in 1938, 'Ich kann die Gestapo jedermann auf das beste empfehlen' refers to the few words that Dr. Sigmund Freud added after his signature in order to be granted an exit visa. Fifty years later this report was disproved yet historical records have continued to perpetuate the myth until the present day. Citations implicating five published biographies are presented with tipped-in plates of Freud's unoccupied home in Vienna, obscuring his personal artefacts relocated in London."--Preface.
"With kind permission of the Freud Museum London and the Sigmund Freud Museum Vienna."--Title page.
"On the occasion of the seventy fifth anniversary of the death of the founder of psychoanalysis - 'Sigmund Freud and the Play on the Burden of Representation', an international group exhibition curated by Mario Codognato, Joseph Kosuth and Luisa Ziaja at 21er Haus, the Museum of Contemporary Art Vienna."--Afterword.
"One hundred and fifty signed and numbered editions from 1/150 to 150/150. Fifteen artist's proofs signed and numbered I/XV to XV/XV." -- Colophon.
