The sculptor Louise Bourgeois was born in Paris in 1911 and studied painting with Ferdinand Légér among others. As one of the most important artists of the 20th century, she lived and worked in New York since her emigration in 1938. Her extensive and challenging work, which includes innumerable drawings as well as several paintings, is now recognized worldwide after decades of obscurity.
In the interview that Christiane Meyer-Thoss conducted with the artist in New York in 1986 and 1989, she gives personal insights into her work.
Christiane Meyer-Thoss, born in 1956, lives and works in Frankfurt am Main as an author, lecturer and editor. Since 1981 she has written extensively on contemporary art and literature, most prominently on Meret Oppenheim. The book "Louise Bourgeois. Designing for Free Fall" from which this interview is taken was published by Ink Press in 2016.
