On the occasion of its fiftieth anniversary, the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation publishes You can go anywhere. Edited by Édouard Detaille and Willem van Roij, this collection of essays by Foundation staff and collaborators reveals the broad scope of how the nonprofit has carried on the legacy of the Alberses over the years.
After an introduction exploring the Foundation's history, You can go anywhere features a wide range of essays by people from around the world who have contributed to the Foundation's work, such as architects Manuel Herz and Toshiko Mori; designers Paul Smith and Christopher Farr; and curators, museum directors, and staff members. The book is richly illustrated with photos by Iwan Baan, Giovanni Hänninen, and Sofia Verzbolovskis, as well as archival material and art by the Alberses. The heart of the book is devoted to the Foundation's many donations to international museums, including rarely shown works of art.
In 2005, the Foundation supported the creation of the humanitarian organization Le Korsa, which helps local communities in Senegal, through health services, education, agriculture, and culture programs. Essays about Le Korsa are sure to inspire the art world, public institutions, and philanthropists.
