ZAGREB, Jan 9 (Hina) – A multisensory exhibition called “Josef and Anni Albers: Voyage Inside a Blind Experience” will be opened at Zagreb’s Museum of Contemporary Art (MSU) on Thursday, the MSU announced on Tuesday.
The exhibition features 63 works of Josen and Anni Albers, pioneers of modernism in the 20th century and key figures in the development of abstract art and artistic education, in the year marking the Bauhaus centenary.
The MSU is the third location in the world where the exhibition is being staged, MSU director Snjezana Pintaric told reporters, adding that many Croatian artists were influenced by the Bauhaus.
All 63 works will be accompanied by tactile reproductions which will enable all visitors to examine them through touch and hearing. The extremely valuable works were loaned by the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation in Connecticut.
The exhibition is part of the “Voyage Inside a Blind Experience” partner project which is co-financed by the EU’s Creative Europe programme.
