Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Happy 100th Birthday...

by Suzanne on January 9th, 2008

... to one of the most inspiring women of the 20th century:


Simone de Beauvoir, 1952 by Elliott Erwitt

"On ne naît pas femme : on le devient."

(Excerpt from "Le Deuxième Sex" by Simone de Beauvoir)

All the best, Simone... wherever you are.

We'll soon meet again in my bookshelf.

ARTE celebrates de Beauvoir's birthday with special broadcasts (in French/German) tomorrow and on Friday. Yay!
