Josef Albers: Messico 1935/1956
With essays by Brenda Danilowitz and Luca Galofaro
Josef and Anni Albers began their travels to Mexico in 1935, drawn to a country very unlike the United States. They were not in search of the exotic but rather of the traces of ancient pre-Columbian civilizations (the Mayans and the Aztecs) and testimonies of the everyday lives of the people.
Albers was a non-professional photographer with the gaze of an architect. Many of these photographs have never previously been published, and contribute to an understanding of one of the greatest innovators of twentieth-century art and culture, whose lessons about vision are never exhausted.
The volume features an introduction by Brenda Danilowitz, chief curator of the Albers Foundation, as well as an essay by Luca Galofaro, professor (LSGMA) and curator (CAMPO, Rome).
