Josef and Anni Albers Foundation

In 1971, Josef Albers established a not-for-profit organization to further "the revelation and evocation of vision through art." Today, this organization—The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation—is devoted to preserving and promoting the enduring achievements of both Josef and Anni Albers, and the aesthetic and philosophical principles by which they lived. It serves as a unique center for the understanding and appreciation of the arts and of all visual experience—with the combined legacies of Josef and Anni Albers at its heart.

The Foundation carries out its mission by working on exhibitions and publications, primarily focused on the art of Josef and Anni Albers; assisting with research; and supporting education. It conserves the Alberses' art and archives, and serves as an information resource for artists, scholars, students, and the general public. It helps sponsor other activities inspired by Josef and Anni Albers's interests and concerns.

The Albers Foundation is located on a beautiful woodland site in Bethany, Connecticut, near New Haven—thanks to funds acquired by Anni Albers for the restitution of family property in the former East Berlin. The Bethany campus includes a central research and archival storage center to accommodate the Foundation's art collections, library and archives, and offices, as well as residence studios for visiting artists. The rural property provides a venue for educational outreach programs.

The buildings were designed by Tim Prentice and his partner Lo-Yi Chan. Tim Prentice, who studied with Josef and is a sculptor as well as an architect, considered the project in part an expression of thanks to one of his mentors; we consider the tribute a splendid success.

The Foundation is open by appointment to interested individuals, scholars, and curators for tours, study, and research."

Making as Knowing: Epistemology and Technique in Craft: The Journal of Modern Craft: Vol 5, No 2
The essay employs the orthodox canon of philosophical discourses in order to inquire into the relationship between episteme and techne. Platonic and Aristotelian postulates are used to trace the historical understandings of the connection between knowing and making in the development and execution of a craft. The metaphor of weaving—instrumental in Platonic discourse—is employed as the thread running through the discussion; this metaphor is also employed to guide the application of episteme and techne to textile production, in particular through a structural analysis of the pleated fabrics used by Mariano Fortuny and Issey Miyake.

LIZA STARK » Hilda Wove All Those Wires
While researching early forms of computer memory for the 2018 Woolpunk Congress, I came across a woman named Hilda G. Carpenter, an African American lab technician at MIT. She was part of a research group that was investigating how small magnetic rings could be used to store memory by weaving wires through them. Indeed, Hilda wove the first plane of this magnetic core memory and dozens more during her time there. Their research was a great success – this was the memory that would eventually be used to land Apollo missions on the moon among other things. In reading recorded interviews of the men who participated in the research group, some mentioned this one woman whose efficiency and productive prowess contributed invaluably to their success. They remembered her name was Hilda – maybe – but could not remember her last name. After weeks of research, I uncovered few documents in the digital archive I could use to thread her story together. This zine captures all of them that I could find.
