Sophie Taeuber-Arp & Hans Arp: Cooperations – Collaborations

31 March 2021

In a special presentation at Hauser & Wirth Publishers HQ, ‘Sophie Taeuber-Arp & Hans Arp: Cooperations – Collaborations’ brings together a selection of rare artist publications by Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Hans Arp from the collection of Daniel Segmüller and Ruth Seiler. The selected books and portfolios on view, made during the Dada movement onwards, celebrate artists coming together to forge new ideas in the face of challenging times.

The collection features early examples of artistic collaboration in Dada Zurich with figures such as Tristan Tzara and Richard Huelsenbeck, as well as the work of celebrated modernist figures such as Max Ernst, Max Bill, Sonia Delaunay, and Alberto Magnelli. Original copies of Taeuber-Arp’s magazine ‘Plastique/Plastic’ are also on view in the presentation, which coincides with the major travelling retrospective ‘Sophie Taeuber-Arp: Living Abstraction’ at the Kunstmuseum Basel, organised in collaboration with the Tate Modern in London and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The display in Zurich follows several collaborative projects with renowned collectors who share Hauser & Wirth Publishers’ passion for artists’ books, recognising their importance within artists’ practices and legacies.
