Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Movement and Balance

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

Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Movement and BalanceThe 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.

FROM THE BOOK
"Sophie Tauber-Arp 'was a self-contained personality, an uncompromising, modern painter, a mind open to the world and world affairs. With closes ties and a deep artistic dedication to France, unperturbed, she maintained the exuberance and serenity of her art despite her direct experience of these last difficult years. [One had to] marvel at the way in which the inner poise and discipline of this European woman prevented the oppressive events of the present from penetrating the region of free intellectual imagination and overshadowing her belief in the future.' These words were chosen by Carola Giedion-Welcker in her obituary for the artist written during the war in January 1943."
