Ok, so this is a pretty serious image of Anni Albers. How about we try this instead?
Yep, that's Josef and Anni, in one of the best-known images of the couple. Anni Albers, who was born Annelise Fleischmann (1899-1994), came to the Bauhaus as a young student in 1922. As a student, Albers entered the weaving workshop because, as a woman, it was the one that was most open to her (despite the progressive nature of the school, it restricted women as to the fields that they could concentrate on - I'll go into more information about the school next week). Anni and Joseph met at the Bauhaus and were married in 1925. As I've already mentioned, my focus this month is going to be on Anni rather than Josef, although it will be important to talk a little bit about Josef's career in relation to Anni as well. I've decided to talk about Alber's career chronologically, discussing her work at the Bauhaus next week, in the U.S. at Black Mountain College in week 2, and at Yale and the later years in week 3.
