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

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 485 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
