"Like the artists at the German Bauhaus, in an age of industrial mass production she wanted to return artisanship and craft to daily life, dissolving the traditional separation between fine and applied arts. There is no doubt that she was one of the most innovative artist of the twentieth century, developing a voice of her own in a wide range of techniques; over and over again one sees the powerful impetus that artisanship lent to her fine art works."
Karin Schnick, excerpted fromSophie Taeuber-Arp: Movement and Balance.

Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Movement and BalanceSophie Taeuber-Arp: Movement and Balance

Published by Kerber.
Text by Stephen Kurz, Francois Morellet, Astrid von Asten, Karin Schick.

The only woman to be represented on a Swiss banknote (the 50-franc note), Sophie Taeuber-Arp was one of the twentieth century's most innovative artists, in painting, sculpture, textiles, dance, architecture and puppetry. Often occupying this role of the only "woman"--in exhibitions, or when socializing among Dadaists and Concrete artists and elsewhere--Taeuber-Arp nevertheless went about her diverse activities as though gender obstacles were immaterial, and steadily built up a massive body of work whose consistent qualities are warmth, clarity and liveliness. Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Movement and Balance is the most complete survey of the artist's work available in any language to date. Packed with full-color illustrations of her work in all media, from her pre-Concrete abstractions to her fabrics, watercolors, canvases, reliefs and her wonderful marionettes, as well as a visual chronology with archival photographs of Taeuber-Arp posing in her costumes, or next to her works with her husband Hans (Jean) Arp, this volume demonstrates the exemplary adventurousness of her career.
