The sexually charged works of Louise Bourgeois and Hans Bellmer reveal remarkable parallels, even though the artists never actually met. Louise Bourgeois (1911-2010) skeptically examined the traditional image of women, Hans Bellmer (1902-1975) created in the puppet an idea woman in which all his desires and fantasies are reflected. This publication establishes for the first time a dialogue between two artists, which are marked by the views of a male and female artist, respectively, as well as by personal obsessions and desires.
