除了布藝創作之外，Anni Albers作畫、設計布藝圖案、做首飾設計，晚年的她，更毅然放棄專長的布藝編織，專注於設計、學術研究及教學。倫敦Tate Modern現正舉行Anni Albers的回顧展，詳情請參考其網站。
The Bauhaus, the German academic institution, declared equality between the sexes when it was founded. Such declaration was, however, not at all realized since there were only a very limited number of courses that accepted female students. When Anni Albers (1899–1994) entered Bauhaus, she was barred from taking the glass workshop. The only place that was willing to accept her was the weaving workshop. This misfortunate circumstance had surprisingly nurtured her into a remarkable textile artist.
Although the textile Albers designed and weaved were for practical use, her passion for abstract art can be easily identified in her works. Be it mass produced fabric or artworks, her designs always have an experimental aesthetics. The painting-like textile she weaved between the 1930s to the 1960s has clearly demonstrated her enthusiasm for visual arts. In this series, she used her unconventional technique to weave threads of different texture and thickness into pieces of textile that resemble three-dimensional abstract paintings. The threads seem to be guided by her surge of emotion; at the same time, they appear to be alive and move by their own free will.
Apart from textile design, Albers was also a painter, pattern designer, and jewelry designer. Later in her life, Albers set aside her lifelong expertise in weaving and began to put her focus on design, academic research and education. Tate Modern in London is currently hosting a retrospective of Anni Albers. For more information, please visit their official website.
