Great quote – ‘Weaving can be misunderstood’

The quote is from a video fragment from a documentary on Anni Albers to be shown in BBC Four in 2019. Click this link to watch

video interview with artist Ismini Samanidou about the work of Anni Albers .

An exhibition of the fabulous work by Anni Albers is on at the Tate Modern in London, UK until Jan 27 2019. I’m not sure if this one is included but included the image as I have grown increasingly enaged with diagonal red and white stripes ( in my case referring to the barber’s pole as a sign of a surgeon or leech master)

Thanks to the BBC, Tate Modern and the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation for pulling all this material together.
