Behind Closed Doors: The Art of Hans Bellmer
Therese Lichtenstein
BEHIND CLOSED DOORS: THE ART OF HANS BELLMER

Berkeley, CA: The University of California Press, April 2001. 266 pgs.

Hans Bellmer's doll photographs of the 1930s remain shocking today. The life-size dolls are dismembered and bizarrely reassembled, often posed in ominous domestic environments. The photographs have been condemned as the work of a violent misogynist and celebrated as a strike against fascist authority. In Behind Closed Doors: The Art of Hans Bellmer, Therese Lichtenstein brings together Bellmer's artwork and writings and psychoanalytic texts by Freud, Lacan, and others to explore the multiplicity of meanings inherent in Bellmer's photographs.
