Anni Albers

Ann Coxon, Briony Fer, Maria Müller-Schareck (Ed.)

Anni Albers was an extraordinarily diverse artist who established the old craft of weaving as an art form and combined it with modern artistic practices. She studied at the Bauhaus in the 1920s, where her husband, Josef Albers, was a teacher. Following their emigration to the USA, both began teaching at the legendary Black Mountain College. It was there that Anni Albers created many of her unique woven pictures, graphic prints and jewellery designs. She experimented with new materials and designed textiles for production.
