Published by RM/The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
Edited by Nicholas Fox Weber, Brenda Danilowitz.

Anni Albers (1899-1994) was one of the twentieth century's greatest textile pioneers, and a versatile artist/craftswoman who could turn her hand with ease to jewelry, writing or printmaking. Of her work in printmaking, American audiences had a glimpse when the Brooklyn Museum organized a survey in 1977. Several years previously, in 1963, Albers had visited the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles, and was immediately attracted to the printing process and the potentials of lithography. Over the next 20 years, she created a series of prints that translated her textile innovations and her Bauhaus sensibility into this medium, introducing Mexican colors into her palette and exploring new lithography techniques, offset printing, photographic processes and silkscreen. Now, RM Verlag and The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation have collaborated on a catalogue raisonné of these prints, creating at last a definitive collection of this extremely significant and previously underdocumented portion of Albers' output.

Bauhaus 1919-1933Bauhaus 1919-1933

Workshops for Modernity

Published by The Museum of Modern Art, New York.
Text by Barry Bergdoll, Leah Dickerman, Benjamin H.D. Buchloh, Brigid Doherty, Hal Foster, Charles W. Haxthausen, Andreas Huyssen, Michael Jennings, Juliet Kinchin, Ellen Lupton, Christine Mehring, Detlef Mertins, Marco De Michelis, Peter Nisbet, Paul Monty Paret, Alex Potts, Frederic J. Schwarz, T'ai Smith, Adrian Sudhalter, Klaus Weber, Christopher Wilk, Matthew S. Witkovsky.

The Bauhaus, the school of art and design founded in Germany in 1919 and shut down by the Nazis in 1933, brought together artists, architects and designers--among them Anni and Josef Albers, Herbert Bayer, Marcel Breuer, Lyonel Feininger, Walter Gropius, Johannes Itten, Vasily Kandinsky, Paul Klee, László Moholy-Nagy, Lilly Reich, Oskar Schlemmer, Gunta Stölzl--in an extraordinary conversation on the nature of art in the industrial age. Aiming to rethink the form of modern life, the Bauhaus became the site of a dazzling array of experiments in the visual arts that have profoundly shaped the world today. Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity, published to accompany a major multimedia exhibition, is The Museum of Modern Art's first comprehensive treatment of the subject since its famous Bauhaus exhibition of 1938, and offers a new generational perspective on the twentieth century's most influential experiment in artistic education. Organized in collaboration with the three major Bauhaus collections in Germany (the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin, the Stiftung Bauhaus Dessau and the Klassic Stiftung Weimar), Bauhaus 1919-1933 examines the extraordinarily broad spectrum of the school's products, including industrial design, furniture, architecture, graphics, photography, textiles, ceramics, theater and costume design, painting and sculpture. Many of the objects discussed and illustrated here have rarely if ever been seen or published outside Germany. Featuring approximately 400 color plates, richly complemented by documentary images, Bauhaus 1919-1933 includes two overarching essays by the exhibition's curators, Barry Bergdoll and Leah Dickerman, that present new perspectives on the Bauhaus. Shorter essays by more than 20 leading scholars apply contemporary viewpoints to 30 key Bauhaus objects, and an illustrated narrative chronology provides a dynamic glimpse of the Bauhaus' lived history.

Anni & Josef AlbersAnni & Josef Albers

Latin American Journeys

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Brenda Danilowitz, Heinz Liesbrock. Text by Brenda Danilowitz, Jenny Anger, Kiki Gilderhus, et al.

Josef Albers (1888–1976) was a highly influential painter, color theorist and teacher--a monumental figure in international postwar art and aesthetics; his wife and artistic equal, Anni Albers (1899–1994), created important textile artworks as well as spare and abstract paintings and drawings. Together, their artistic roots can be traced to the time they shared at the Bauhaus in Germany in the 1920s and early 1930s. After immigrating to the United States in 1933, the couple traveled regularly to Mexico and South America to study the art, architecture and textile designs of pre-Columbian cultures.
Featuring previously unseen letters, manuscripts and photographs by the artists, as well as lush color plates of their artworks, this catalogue is the first to document the influence of Central and South America on the Albers’ work. It also makes the case that their art, as we know it today, cannot be understood without acknowledging their pivotal encounters in Latin America, for Anni’s weavings, drawings and painted studies demonstrate her deep knowledge of pre-Colombian textiles, and Josef’s paintings and photographs testify to the development of his unique sense of color in Mexico, as well as the formation of his independent concepts of photography and Formalism. One particularly stunning chapter, Hommage to the Pyramid includes Josef Albers’ photographic collages of South American Meso-American pyramids. The abstract, graphic quality of these images refers directly and surprisingly to both artists’ paintings and textiles.

Accompanying a centennial retrospective of her work, this volume contains full-color reproductions of Albers's most important weavings, drapery materials and wall coverings, as well as scores of her highly influential commercial textile designs. Anni Albers had an enormous effect on the design of yard materials worldwide.

Abstraction: The Amerindian ParadigmAbstraction: The Amerindian Paradigm

Published by Societe des Expositions du Palais des Beaux-Arts de Bruxelles.
Artwork by Anni Albers, Josef Albers, Libero Badii, Helmut Federle, Gonzalo Fonseca, Adolph Gottlieb, Francisco Matto, Louise Nevelson, Alejandro Puente, Eduardo Ramirez Villamizar, Lenore Tawney, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Paul Klee, Barnett Newman, Tony SmText by Cecilia de Torres, Valentin Ferdinan, Mary Frame, Cesar Paternosto, Piet Coessens, Lucy Lippard.

Less familiar strands of the history of modern art are often obscured by the canonical history of Western abstraction. In rethreading them, Abstraction: The Amerindian Paradigm ascertains the unfolding of an abstract art that was born of a cross-fertilization with the indigenous arts of the Americas. The abstract forms that have emerged from practices such as weaving and ceramics, which the West has long deemed "lowly crafts," are reread, challenging the dominant assumption that abstract art is a prerogative of the modern West. The uncompromising geometry and bold colors of ancient Andean weavings--insistently characterized in ethnographic and art historical discourses as decorative--are heralded here as the textile paradigm of abstraction, a grid that precedes by millennia the Western modernist grid. Between the 1920s and 40s, Paul Klee, Joaquin Torres-Garcia, Josef and Anni Albers, Barnett Newman, and Adolph Gottlieb led the way in gazing at the ancient American arts. Later, Louise Nevelson, Alfred Jensen, Mathias Goeritz, Tony Smith, Helmut Federle, and South American artists Libero Badii, Francisco Matto, Gonzalo Fonseca, Eduardo Ramirez Villamizar, Alejandro Puente, and Cesar Paternosto, as well as textile artist Lenore Tawney and poet/artist Cecilia Vicuna, had significant encounters with the Amerindian arts.

In their accompanying essays, Cesar Paternosto focuses on the emergence of an abstraction rooted on the indigenous arts of the Americas; Lucy R. Lippard writes on her experiences while researching the rock art of New Mexico; Mary Frame discusses the cultural resonance of textile structural forms in the ancient Andes; Cecilia de Torres narrates the story of the pioneering trecks to pre-Columbian sites by Torres-Garcia's disciples; and Valentin Ferdinan discusses the formative aspects of modern culture in Latin America.
