One and One is Four: The Bauhaus Photocollages of Josef Albers
October 23, 2016
through April 2, 2017
Influential pioneer of Modernism Josef Albers worked in and taught many disciplines, perhaps the least well-known being his photography, which was discovered after his death in 1976. A highlight of his photography is a set of 70 photocollages that he produced with photos taken during his time at the Bauhaus from 1928 to 1932. The collages represent ideas Albers confronted throughout his life, such as perception, seriality, and the use of handcraft versus mechanical production. MoMA’s recent acquisition of 10 collages, in addition to two previously donated by the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, makes it the largest collection of its kind outside the Foundation.
