Review: Josef Albers: To Open Eyes: The Bauhaus, Black Mountain and Yale
Josef Albers: To Open Eyes: The Bauhaus, Black Mountain and Yale
Frederick A. Horowitz and Brenda Danilowitz
Wow … to say the least. Phaidon Press has done it again in producing a book that not only is stunningly graphic and visual but has the academic content to back up such a pretty face. In “To Open Eyes,” Horotwitz and Danilowitz have done an incredibly meticulous job of tracing Albers life and habits to his teaching and ideas. They first set up a history of Albers life, pepper it with interviews of former students and then finally set it all out on a platter of teaching methods within a scrumptious nod towards presentation and style. “To Open Eyes” is the first book to cover Albers pedagogy; for those who know Albers as an artist par excellent, this books covers his fastidious look at materials and talks about how his pedagogy influences his artistic practice. – Erik Lopez
