Exiles (Emily Hass)

Exiles is a monograph of works by artist Emily Hass based on archival architectural plans of the Berlin buildings where Jews and persecuted artists and intellectuals lived in the 1930s. Intended to explore parallels between forced migrations during WWII and current mass displacement in Syria and elsewhere, the book caught our eye for two reasons: First, the work is graphically striking and, second, it features the home of Josef and Anni Albers. (And we like them). A collaboration with Mike Dyer of Remake Design, Exiles includes contributions from artist, potter, and writer Edmund de Waal, and curator and cultural heritage historian Kristin Parker. But it’s just a nice thing, filled with really good work that bridges art, architecture, politics, and history.
