English language translation and revised edition in collaboration with The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation and The Centre Pompidou Correspondence between two of the Bauhaus movements major figures Wassily Kandinsky and Josef Albers were colleaguesMoreEnglish language translation and revised edition in collaboration with The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation and The Centre Pompidou Correspondence between two of the Bauhaus movements major figures Wassily Kandinsky and Josef Albers were colleagues at the Bauhaus school in Dessau, Germany. And after the institution was shut down in 1933, they shared a destiny as emigres Kandinsky and his wife Nina in Paris, Albers and his wife, the weaver and teacher Anni Albers, in the U.S. Their correspondence, covering the period from 1929 to 1940, provides a unique perspective on this tumultuous period in history and in art. Despite the increasingly alarming political situation that serves as the backdrop for these letters, the tone of these exchanges born of a warm and serious friendship is surprisingly optimistic.
