Meret Oppenheim - My Album
The Autobiographical Album “From Childhood Till 1943” and a Handwritten Biography
Edited by Lisa Wenger & Martina Corgnati
The work of Meret Oppenheim (1913–1985) embodies Dada and Surrealist art practices, but today she is celebrated as an original thinker who followed her own vision. In 1958 she created an album and named it From Childhood to 1943. It functioned as both a diary and a work of art—assembling photos, objects, notes, and brief texts, as well as ideas and concepts for artworks. This beautiful book features the entire album in 190 true-size color reproductions, with all text translated fully into English.
