This autumn Kunstmuseum Den Haag will be staging a retrospective of the work of artistic duo Anni and Josef Albers, featuring over 200 artworks – paintings, photographs, furniture, drawings and textile. The couple met at the Bauhaus in 1922 when they were both teaching there. There, they developed a lifelong personal and professional relationship. After fleeing Germany in 1933 they continued to make art and teach in the United States.   

The exhibition will show how Anni Albers evolved into a true pioneer of modern textile art, and Josef underwent a process of artistic development that culminated in his world-famous Homage to the Square series comprising hundreds of colour studies in a square format. Although Anni and Josef worked with different materials, the exhibition will show how much they influenced each other, sharing the same sense of colour, rhythm and form that reflects the principles of the Bauhaus – such as respect for the material and for experimentation. The impact of the work and teaching of the Albers on the development of modern art cannot be overstated.  

The exhibition is being created in close collaboration with the The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation
