Alberto Giacometti, Georges Bataille, Samuel Beckett, Jean Genet
Throughout his life, Alberto Giacometti (1901–1966) was in conversation with some of the most influential intellectuals of the twentieth century. By highlighting three writers – Georges Bataille, Jean Genet, and Samuel Beckett, with whom the artist sustained lasting friendships – the exhibition ”Giacometti – Face to Face” examines how these dialogues may be traced in Giacometti’s oeuvre.
Giacometti, Bataille, Beckett, Genet and their ideas have made a deep impact on the minds of many contemporary artists, writers and thinkers.
