American sculptor, Eva Hesse (b. 1936, Hamburg; d. 1970, New York) is best known for her pioneering work with materials such as rope, latex and fibreglass. She is regarded as one of the artists who ushered in PostMinimalism in the late 1960s.
Her diaries from 1955 to 1970 served as a tool for the artist to analyse her experience of the world and express her feelings.
‘Eva Hesse: Diaries’ has been awarded the 2016 Most Beautiful Swiss Book Award by the Swiss Culture Awards Federal Office of Culture.
