      Author Renate Stendhal was the studio assistant for Meret Oppenheim from 1973 to 1980 — the time when feminists and the art world (re)discovered the artist of Object the “fur-lined teacup.” Renate helped Meret brainstorm and formulate her position on women’s art, write her famous Basel speech, discuss bi-sexuality, and write German and French letters on the topic of feminism to male critics and writers. Stendhal’s account of her Paris years was published as Kiss Me Again, Paris: A Memoir, IFSF Publishing, 2016.
