Until April 14th, Galerie Berinson is presenting numerous paintings, drawings and prints in the first comprehensive solo exhibition of the work of Josef Albers in Berlin since 1988.
For decades, Josef Albers worked on variations on a single image: the Homage to the Square. His goal was to attain the utmost expression from the most minimal means of design.
Within the unchanging parameters of the square, he explored chromatic interaction by alternately employing stark contrasts and subtle, barely perceptible nuances.
Josef Albers influence on modern European and North American art is rooted not only in his work but also in his activity as a teacher in Germany and the United States. His courses at the Bauhaus and – after having migrated to the USA in 1933 – at Black Mountain College and Yale proved formative for generations of young artists. Former students of his include Robert Rauschenberg, Eva Hesse and Richard Serra just to name a few.
The exhibition at Galerie Berinson, Berlin remains open until April 14th. The source of this article is Berinson.
