Description
This ground-breaking book redefines Albers’s outstanding contribution to twentieth-century art and design. Contextualising her early career at the Bauhaus, and her teaching years at Black Mountain College, it showcases major commissioned works, wall hangings, designs for commercial use, preparatory drawings, jewellery designed and made by Albers and a selection of her prints. A series of short texts from a range of experts focus on key works and themes. Illuminating Albers’s skill as a weaver, her material awareness and acute understanding of art and design, this much-needed publication is a celebration of one of the most influential artists of the twentieth century, and her endless creativity.

Anni Albers (1899–1994) was a textile designer, weaver, writer and printmaker, who was among the leading pioneers of twentieth-century modernism. Throughout her fruitful career she inspired a reconsideration of fabrics, both in their functional roles and as wall hangings, truly establishing thread and weaving as a valid medium for art. In her later years, Albers took up print-making, translating many of her persistent themes and ideas into two-dimensional form.

Ann Coxon is Curator of International Art, at Tate.

Briony Fer is an art historian, critic, and curator. Presently she is Professor of History of Art at University College London.

Maria Müller–Schareck is Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at K20, Düsseldorf.
