Fantastic reality : Louise Bourgeois and a story of modern art by Mignon Nixon( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La autora aboga por una nueva historia psicoanalítica del arte moderno a partir del recorrido por el arte de Louise Bourgeois, cuya condición ella misma denominaba "realidad fantástica", desde la oposición de la artista a los "padres" del surrealismo, hasta su papel galvanizador en el movimiento feminista a partir de los años setenta y posteriormente en el postmodernismo, explorando las respuestas de Bourgeois -como diálogos con el psicoanálisis- a la guerra y la maternidad, al predicamento de la mujer artista y a las políticas de liberación sexual y social. Convencida de que podía expresar "cosas profundas en tres dimensiones", Bourgeois abandonó la pintura por la escultura, basando su trabajo en las teorías psicoanalíticas de Melanie Klein, teniendo en cuenta lo negativo -fragmentos, grietas, deformidades- en las fantasías corporales de madre e hijo

Louise Bourgeois : Konstruktionen für den freien Fall by Christiane Meyer-Thoss( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in German and English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ich will nicht schockieren, ich will genau sein." Das Geheimnis der Bildhauerin Louise Bourgeois manifestiert sich am deutlichsten in ihren eigenen Worten. Louise Bourgeois ist die Übertreibungskünstlerin in persona, beinahe eine Pop-Ikone - ihre Komik und Gelassenheit sind hart erarbeitete und durchlebte Zugaben, die sich mit Verzögerung einstellen und ihren Werken Grösse und Glanz verleihen. Das vorliegende Buch der Bourgeois-Pionierin Christiane Meyer-Thoss ist ein Reprint. Es umfasst eine Einführung ins Werk, Auszüge aus den Gesprächen mit der Künstlerin und zahlreiche Zitate. Die Publikation würdigt die intensive Zusammenarbeit der Autorin mit Louise Bourgeois, deren internationale Rezeption damals erst noch bevorstand. Unter anderem entdeckte die Künstlerin in kontinuierlichen Gesprächen mit Christiane Meyer-Thoss, danach mit anderen Autoren, die Eloquenz und Schlagkraft der bündigen "quotes", ihrer "Standpunkte", für die sie später bekannt wurde: "Mein frühes Werk ist die Angst zu fallen. Später wurde daraus die Kunst zu fallen. Wie man fällt, ohne sich zu verletzen. Noch später - die Kunst, auszuharren."

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many artists use the pain, exhilaration and resolution of private desires to express themselves in their art. This documentary focuses on intense personalities who've used their art to explore the emotional impact, or dark humor of psychological truths. The film also plumbs issues that affect artists -- preoccupations of startling universality -- like community, motivation and controversy, finding one's audience, and just 'getting it right'."--Back of container
