"The interpretation of dreams" - the first serious work of Sigmund Freud, the Austrian father of psychoanalysis. Maybe it's a fateful date, or maybe in the revolutionary monograph, but the first edition for a long time did not find buyers. In the "Interpretation of dreams" Freud first explained such an important phenomenon of psychoanalysis as the unconscious. But today we will look at some of the works of artists and sculptors, which are presented at the exhibition "Dreams without Freud."
Erarta Museum in St. Petersburg is an art project built on the poetics of dreams and expressive images of our parallel life. Artists have shown the most vivid imagination to show the visual side of the diversity of human dreams.

In his paintings, the artist showed a new virtual reality gamer and hacker. All this state blurs the boundaries of reality. Many people, especially young people, have acquired a new state of virtual reality, which was not without the Internet and the slow speed of transmission and communication of information. The pictures are very attractive and colorful. This is a completely different world, with its adventures and dangers.
