Portfolio «Connections», 1925-1983/1983

Graphic work (editions), 9 elements of
In 1929, Anni Albers came to Barcelona for the International Exposition, and in particular to visit the German pavilion by Mies van der Rohe. She was then working as a teacher at the Bauhaus, where she had studied abstract art and textile design as a student. Albers dedicated her life to teaching and experimenting with abstract textile compositions. In 1984, she published Connections, a series of autobiographical screenprints in which she reflects on her life as a designer, based on different motifs from each of her developmental stages. These two correspond to her period at the Bauhaus.
