Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010), one of the most important artists of modern and contemporary art, was born in Paris and lived and worked in New York as of 1938. Memories, sexuality, love and abandonment are the core of her complex body of work.
Proceeds will go towards Haus der Kunst Munich.
Haus der Kunst is a non-collecting public museum and a key global center for contemporary art. It is dedicated to the exploration of the diverse histories of contemporary art based on a foundation of focused exhibitions, research, and education.
Through its programs, Haus der Kunst affirms and acknowledges that the trajectories of contemporary art are global, multifocal, polysemic, and unbounded by cartographic, conceptual, and cultural limits.
