by Lake Verea, with an essay by Brenda Danilowitz
In 1925, textile artist Annelise Fleischmann married multimedia artist Josef Albers and thus began one of the most artistically fruitful marriages of the 20th century. Both students-turned-masters of the Bauhaus and later attendees of Black Mountain College, Anni and Josef revolutionized their respective fields as individual artists and educators, and as a couple.
In this beautiful tribute to creative collaboration, the Mexican photography duo Lake Verea discover the material and intellectual traces of the Alberses’ creative influence through their archival ephemera, including correspondence with Bauhaus colleagues, tubes of paint, and fabric. The personal context of Anni and Josef’s creative life together emerges from these objects, conversations, and associations.
