In almost theatrical scenes, these everyday objects—items of clothing, fabric, or furniture—along with singular sculptures by Bourgeois, create a charged barrier between the interior world of the artist and the exterior world that is the exhibition space.

This exhibition, the first solely devoted to analyzing the Cells series, contains the largest number of Cells ever presented together. It also includes important works from previous decades that led to the development of the series. This comprehensive survey brings to light key aspects of Bourgeois’s thinking about space and memory, the body and architecture, and the conscious and the unconscious.

Louise Bourgeois: Structures of Existence; The Cells is organized by Haus der Kunst, Munich, in collaboration with the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.
