Published by Phaidon, Anni and Josef Albers: Equal and Unequal tells the story of the German-American artist couple who became known as pioneers of abstract art. The visual biography is dominated by bold, large colour photographs. The book has been written by Nicholas Fox Weber, Director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation.
Josef – painter, designer, and teacher – and Anni Albers – textile artist and printmaker – are among the twentieth century's most important abstract artists, and this is the first monograph to celebrate the rich creative output and beguiling relationship of these two masters in one elegant volume. It presents their life and work as never before, from their formative years at the Bauhaus in Germany to their remarkable influence at Black Mountain College in the United States through their intensely productive period in Connecticut.
