A stunning selection of late and unseen works by Louise Bourgeois taken from philosophical, critical, and artistic points of view. Working fearlessly during the last ten years of her life, Louise Bourgeois made a final artistic breakthrough, making incursions into her personal memories while exploring universal concerns about art and the experience of being a woman in the twentieth century. This book explores Louise Bourgeois' work of the last ten years of her life, exploring her private and continued interest in Freud and how his theories were reflected in her art and diaries. The book contains a selection of psychoanalytical texts by the artist, an illustrated biography, and a list of related videos and films. It accompanies an exhibition hosted by La Casa Encendida in Madrid from October 2012 to January 2013.
Artist: Louise Bourgeois
