The book accompanies the exhibition Yayoi Kusama: A Retrospective, A bouquet of love I saw in the universe at the Gropius Bau in Berlin. We designed the German and English language editions. This book is a recording of the artist’s work spanning over 80 years. In the heart of the book is an illustrated Chronology printed on different paper stock, providing information of the political and cultural landscape of Kusama’s work as well as background information, letters and press cuttings. Eleven essays and five plates sections complete the book. The book has been co-published by Prestel.

Our cover collage features a detail from: ONCE THE ABOMINABLE WAR IS OVER, HAPPINESS FILLS OUR HEARTS, 2010
