Published by Hauser & Wirth Publishers.
Edited by Barry Rosen with Tamara Bloomberg.

“Giving life to a once white piece of linen stretched on 4 pieces of wood, to create a rich visual experience is indeed an intriguing complete experience,” wrote Eva Hesse in a 1957 diary entry between notes on her weekly plans and further musings about her goals as an artist. In this extensive collection of Hesse’s diaries, recorded from 1955 to 1970, readers are given an intimate glimpse into the mind of one of contemporary sculpture’s most prominent figures. Despite personal tragedies and the difficulties she faced as one of the few female artists in the male-dominated postminimalist movement, Hesse remained intrepid in both her life and craft. Composed of twisted ropes and delicate plastic among other unconventional materials, Hesse’s sculptures defy traditional notions of form; her deeply thoughtful practice as a sculptor and a painter are revealed at length in her writing.
Born to Jewish parents in 1936, American painter and sculptor Eva Hesse fled Nazi Germany with her older sister at the age of two and eventually reunited with her family in New York City a year later. In 1959 she received her BA from Yale University, and within a few years began creating the sculptures that would put her at the forefront of the postminimalist movement. Though her life was cut short in 1970, Hesse’s prolific output of artwork in her decade-long career has cemented her as a pioneer of contemporary sculpture.

Eva Hesse: Oberlin DrawingsEva Hesse: Oberlin Drawings

Drawings in the Collection of the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College

Published by Hauser & Wirth Publishers.
Edited by Barry Rosen. Foreword by Helen Hesse Charash, Andria Derstine. Text by Briony Fer, Gioia Timpanelli, Manuela Ammer, Andrea Gyorody, Jörg Daur.

This monumental tome contains the entirety of the important German artist’s drawings held in the collection of the Allen Memorial Art Museum, Oberlin College, Ohio. The AMAM was the first museum to purchase a sculpture by Hesse, Laocoon, in 1970. In gratitude for its recognition of Hesse's work, and following the artist's untimely death, her sister Helen Hesse Charash generously donated the artist's notebooks, diaries, sketchbooks, photographs and letters to the museum.

Hesse’s drawings played a crucial role in her work, which in turn gave way to an array of highly innovative techniques and styles that today still defy classification. As she commented in 1970: “I had a great deal of difficulty with painting but never with drawing ... the translation or transference to a large scale and in painting was always tedious.... So I started working in relief and with line.” Hesse’s custom of introducing sculptural materials into drawing and painting continues to influence artmaking today.

Eva Hesse (1936–70) was one of the foremost artists of the 20th century. Her work combined the seriality and reductionism of 1960s minimalism with emotion, sensuousness and physicality. Her work is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Tate, Guggenheim and many others.

Eva Hesse: One More than OneEva Hesse: One More than One

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Hubertus Gassner, Brigitte Kölle, Petra Roettig. Text by Renate Petzinger, Tom Doyle, Doug Johns, Brigitte Kölle, Lucy Lippard, Robert Mangold, Sylvia Mangold, Cindy Nemser, Petra Roettig, Franz Erhard Walther.

Eva Hesse (1936–1970) was one of the foremost women artists of the twentieth century. Her artistic practice combined the seriality and reduction of 1960s Minimalism with emotion, sensuousness and physicality, while the transparency and transience of her unconventional materials also contributed greatly to her unique position in the art world of her day. From November 2013 onward, the Hamburger Kunsthalle is presenting the first solo exhibition of Hesse’s work in her native city. Hesse emigrated with her family via the Netherlands and England to the United States in 1938. They settled in New York City, where she later studied painting at the Cooper Union School of Art from 1954 to 1957, and then continued her studies in the master class of Josef Albers at the Yale School of Art and Architecture from 1957 to 1959. At the invitation of Friedrich Arnhard Scheidt, a German industrialist and art collector, and his wife Isabel, Hesse and her husband Tom Doyle spent a year in Kettwig an der Ruhr during 1964–1965. This period is regarded as a turning point in Hesse’s artistic practice. Drawing inspiration from the materials she found in an abandoned textile factory in Kettwig, she made her first three-dimensional artworks, and when she returned to New York she devoted herself exclusively to sculpture, creating fragile works in unconventional materials such as polyester, fiberglass and latex. Hesse died of a brain tumor in 1970, aged just 34. The exhibition at the Hamburger Kunsthalle focuses on the latter part of the artist’s career, a highly productive period in which she created a substantial number of sculptures and drawings.

Eva Hesse: Transformations - The Sojourn In Germany 1964/65 & Datebooks 1964/65Eva Hesse: Transformations - The Sojourn In Germany 1964/65 & Datebooks 1964/65

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Introduction by Gerald Matt. Essays by Sabine Folie and Georgia Holz.

Eva Hesse is best known for the ethereal sculptures she created out of latex and fiberglass, a body of work that shows affinities with the concerns of Minimalism but cannot be easily characterized under any particular art movement. The majority of publications about her too-brief oeuvre have focused almost exclusively on the sculptures she produced after 1965. This slipcased, two-volume edition offers the first pronounced consideration of the transformative time prior to that year. Volume I documents Hesse's production from 1962 to 1966 through reproductions of drawings, collages, sculptures, and plastic reliefs. Volume II presents, for the first time ever, her notebooks from 1964 and 1965, a watershed year in her artistic practice. This primary material is reproduced in its original English (alongside German translations).
