Hans Bellmer

11 01 2014

Bellmer would have been a controversial figure in any era. His work is very political. But aside from history, the personal slant is very disturbing. The Nazis thought his work was degenerate. Its appears to reflect their own psyches.

‘He initiated his doll project to oppose the fascism of the Nazi Party by declaring that he would make no work that would support the new German state. Represented by mutated forms and unconventional poses, his dolls were directed specifically at the cult of the perfect body then prominent in German.’
