Designer, Dancer, Architect
Distributed for Verlag Scheidegger and Spiess
Featuring rarely seen architectural drawings and furniture designs, Sophie Taeuber-Arp traces the artist’s life from her beginnings as a dance student of Rudolf von Laban and her involvement in the Dada movement in Zurich to her marriage to French sculptor Jean Arp and her subsequent association with the Swiss Werkbund, to her eventual flight from the Nazis in France and return to Switzerland. Essays by prominent curators and art historians place Taeuber-Arp’s career in context, making this the definitive book on an extraordinary modernist figure.
