Julia Kristeva’s Revolt in the Work of Louise Bourgeois

Alexandra Sans Massó


Julia Kristeva’s concept of revolt allows us to consider the work of Louise Bourgeois from different perspectives, encouraging new readings of her artistic production. Revolt, as a remembrance of one’s experiences in life through the work of psychoanalysis, the motion of returning to a core theme during more than seven decades of artistic production and the return of the corporeal with its dominance in the sculptural, allows us to get closer to the creative process of one of the most important artists of the 20th and 21st Centuries.
