UKJF FilmClub: Eva Hesse

Cinema

Directed by Marcie Begleiter| 2016 | Germany, USA | English, German with English subtitles | 108mins | Certificate 12A

This FilmClub screening will be followed by a discussion, glass of wine and nibbles. Share your thoughts with friends and film experts about the film you’ve seen.

The life of pioneering Jewish American artist Eva Hesse was short and in many ways tragic: fleeing Nazi Germany, enduring her parents’ separation and mother’s suicide, surviving a turbulent relationship and falling ill in her early 30s.

In the face of all her trouble, Hesse found solace in her art, creating distinctive pieces of work that propelled her to the forefront of the New York art world. Although her career spanned only a decade, her work lives on, and is celebrated today as ever before. Eva Hesse is the story of an exceptional artist, and an equally exceptional era, one that has changed the art world forever. Featuring high quality footage of Hesse's artwork and a wealth of newly discovered archival imagery, the documentary not only traces Eva's path but engages in a lively investigation into the creative community of 1960s New York and Germany.
