Born in Mexico in 1907, Frida Kahlo learned about suffering at an early age. She fell victim to polio at the age of six, and was then seriously hurt in a bus accident at eighteen, resulting in injuries that affected her for the rest of her life. The young and indomitable Frida met Diego Rivera, the great mural painter, when Mexico was at a great cultural and political crossroads. They formed a legendary partnership, with a strong attachment to Mexican folk art, a deep commitment to the Communist struggle and a raging artistic ambition that survived all the trials of their marriage. Admired by the Surrealists and photographed by the greatest, Frida was most renowned for her self-portraits and unusual still lifes. This book traces the extraordinary life of this artist whose unforgettable imagery combined cruelty and wit, honesty and insolence, pain and empowerment.

Als Frida ein kleines schwarzes Notizbuch geschenkt bekommt, ahnt sie noch nicht, wofür sie es eines Tages benötigen wird. Auf der ersten Seite steht die Widmung: »Hab den Mut zu leben, denn sterben kann jeder.« Und Frida hat Mut. Sie trotzt den vielen persönlichen Rückschlägen und nimmt sich vom Leben, was sie will. Doch Frida lebt geborgte Tage. Ihr schmerzender Körper erinnert sie stets an ein Geheimnis, das sich in ihrem Notizbuch offenbart: Vor Jahren schloss sie einen Pakt mit einer geheimnisvollen Gestalt, die sie fortan begleitet, bis eines Tages der Zeitpunkt einer letzten Zusammenkunft bevorsteht. Ein fesselnder Roman, der die geheimnisvolle Seite des extremen Lebens der Künstlerin schildert; mit vielen raffinierten, persönlichen Kochrezepten von Frida Kahlo.

In der kleinen mexikanischen Stadt Toledo findet in jedem Jahr eine dreitägige Fiesta, das Ixmiq-Festival statt. Dort treffen im Schatten der Pyramide und der Kathedrale die Traditionen Mexikos aufeinander, während das Fest der Stiere in seiner ganzen Brutalität und Schönheit seinem tödlichen Höhepunkt entgegenfiebert.

Carr, a Canadian, O'Keeffe, an American, and Kahlo, a Mexican, were not close during their lives, but Udall (an independent art historian in Santa Fe, New Mexico), in this carefully reasoned and illuminating study, effectively brings many aspects of the artists' works together to demonstrate a kind of zeitgeist they shared as women developing often surprisingly similar, non-traditional themes in the 1920s. Links between their works are developed in the areas of nationalism, identity, gender, nature, and self through discussion of their paintings, psychology, and artistic influences.

Art produced in the so-called Third World, or by non-European or North American artists, is usually seen as either traditional and folkloric, or a poor imitation of modernism. In art history, the avant-garde has always been associated with the Western metropolis, forgetting that every country has had its own particular relationship with modernity. This book describes a contemporary flourishing of radical artistic experiment in Argentine, Brazil and Chile (or by artists originating from there). The focus and priorities have been different to those of Europe and North America; at the same time, the work intensifies many of the issues which face us all. The nine artists whose work is described and analysed here use a wide range of materials: from paint, silkscreen, and photography to potatoes, money, magnets, wire, bone, feathers. Each artist has a particular strategy; in fact the variety and sophistication of the devices they use makes this a dazzling anthology of a modern visual poetics. Each artist invents new and many-levelled metaphors which link the 'Latin American' with the 'global'. This lucidly written, beautifully illustrated book is published to accompany an exhibition of the same title held at the Ikon Gallery, Birmingham and Cornerhouse, Manchester in 1990.
