Hotel Waldhaus and various other places in the Engadin
On the trail of Viennese Modernism in the Upper Engadine - Psychoanalysis. Literature and art.

The focus of the KLT 2024 is, on the one hand, the influence of psychoanalysis, in particular the work "The Interpretation of Dreams" (1899) by Sigmund Freud, on two writers of Viennese modernism, Arthur Schnitzler and Hugo von Hofmannsthal, who - like Freud - were guests in the Engadin. Among Freud's students and close confidants, the psychiatrist Karl Abraham should be mentioned, who also stayed in the Upper Engadin several times, namely in the Hotel Alpenrose in Sils. His examination of the life and work of the symbolist Giovanni Segantini, who was celebrated in Austria at the turn of the century, is another thematic focus of the event. In 1911, Abraham published the study Giovanni Segantini: A Psychoanalytical Attempt, which had a lasting impact on the reception of the painter.
