A superstar in the art world, but little known outside, why does Eva Hesse continue to excite passions? This brilliant, gifted and visionary woman of 1960s NY survives personal chaos while creating work that changes the profile of art history. Along with creating a significant and deeply influential body of work during her short life, her story overlaps some of 20th century's most intriguing moments: Germany in the 1930's, New York's Jewish culture of immigration in the 1940's and the art scene in Manhattan and Germany in the 1960's. Hesse, one of the most important 20th century artists is finally revealed in this character-driven film, an emotionally gripping and inspiring journey with an artist of uncommon talent, a woman of extraordinary courage.
Best artist documentary I have seen in years, very moving and really unprecedented insight into this amazing artist. The contributions from artists that knew here were amazing, as well as some of the recovered journal entries. So interesting to see the thoughts this artist was happening as she was dealing with her illness and at the same time her meteoric rise as an artist on the international scene. Must see documentary.
