Josef Albers

Art as Experience: The Teaching Methods of a Bauhaus Master

ISBN: 9788836625970 (HB - E/ IT)

Josef Albers (1888-1976) was one of the foremost geometric abstract artists of the twentieth century. In the work he made initially as a figurative artist, then at the Bauhaus - where he was for longer than any other individual - and, following his emigration from Germany to the US, at the experimental Black Mountain College and Yale University, he strived for economy of line and in precise articulation, and was determined to keep the personal out of his work while revealing the universal and timeless truths of earthly existence. In 1963, Albers published his profoundly influential Interaction of Color; translated into twelve languages, it is used worldwide, and will soon appear in a digital edition. Josef Albers. Art as Experience has been conceived to emphasize the relationship of Josef Albers's teaching with his art. It presents never-before-seen works by Albers's students from the Bauhaus and elsewhere, along with littleknown studies and other art by Albers himself, and reveals the vibrancy and extraordinary impact of Josef Albers's groundbreaking pedagogical methods.
