14th Nov 2016One of the least familiar aspects of Josef Albers' career is his inventive engagement with photography, which was only discovered after his death. In a new exhibition at MoMA, photocollages featuring photographs Albers made at the Bauhaus between 1928 and 1932, anticipate and highlight themes that Albers would pursue throughout his career, such as seriality, perception and the relationship between craft and mechanical production.
