Anni Albers Experiments

Education director Fritz Horstman and associate curator Karis Medina, both from the Albers Foundation, examine the theory and practice of Anni Albers. Following Albers's idea that a weaving is a whole built out of parts, Fritz and Karis interweave quotes by Anni Albers with lines from some of the authors she admired most. Images and audio clips further evoke the incredible body of textiles, works on paper, and written work that Anni Albers produced during the forty-four years that she lived in her adopted state of Connecticut. Created in association with the New Britain Museum of American Art for the exhibition In Thread and On Paper: Anni Albers in Connecticut (May 2020).
