One and One is Four: The Bauhaus Photocollages of Josef Albers
'This small, vital display of medleys of photographs...reveals the man, and the joy, behind the pedagogy...these works are infectiously buoyant' - The New Yorker

During an extraordinary career that originated at the Bauhaus, Josef Albers (1888–1976) achieved acclaim for his work across a range of mediums, from glassworks and furniture design to printmaking and painting. Yet Albers’ engagement with modernist photography remained largely hidden until after his death. many for the first time.
Published to accompany the MoMA's 2016 installation of Josef Albers' photocollages, this publication presents for the first time all of the unique photocollages the artist produced at the famed art school, many for the first time.
One and One Is Four: The Bauhaus Photocollages of Josef Albers reveals an artist at once playful and restrained, personal and enigmatic. The publication features essays that consider Albers’s photocollages as remarkable contributions to the medium and examines the artist’s materials to suggest new insights into these works.
