This exhibition is dedicated to the work of Anni and Josef Albers, exploring the various lines of artistic production of these two towering artists and pioneers of twentieth-century modernism. While they developed their respective work independently, the intimate, empathetic bond between them underpinned a lifetime of mutual support and encouragement and an ongoing dialogue founded on shared respect.

Anni and Josef Albers met in 1922 at the Bauhaus and married three years later. Throughout their lives and artistic practices, they shared the conviction that art could profoundly transform our world and should be at the very heart of human existence.

In addition to its comprehensive presentation of their respective oeuvres, this is the first exhibition in Spain dedicated to the two artists as a couple throughout the different phases of their creative production. The exhibition follows a chronological order and comprises around 350 works—paintings, photographs, designs and textiles, films, documentary material, as well as a selection of furniture from their time at Bauhaus—that mark some of the many highlights in the career of the couple of artists.
