Failure by Lisa Le Feuvre( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Amidst current global uncertainty failure has become a central subject of investigation in recent art. Artists have actively claimed the space of failure to propose a resistant view of the world. Here success is deemed overrated, doubt embraced, experimentation encouraged and risk considered a viable position. Between the poles of success and failure lies a productive space where paradox rules and dogma is refused. This anthology establishes failure as a core concern in contemporary cultural production. Failure is one of a series documenting major themes and ideas in contemporary art."

Hans Bellmer by Hans Bellmer( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and German and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La fascinación surrealista por muñecas y máquinas semejantes al hombre resulta patente en la obra de Bellmer, contrario al ideal ario del nazismo, como expresan sus muñecas distorsionadas de cera, madera, lino, escayola y goma. La muestra presenta dibujos, litografías y fotografías que reflejan las obsesiones eróticas del artista, fuertemente influido por las teorías freudianas, e investigan las teorías psicoanalíticas sobre la histeria y la transferencia, revelando una exploración peculiar de la relación entre cuerpo y lenguaje ("... el cuerpo es comparable a una frase que te invita a desarticularla...")
