Three to four squares, each nested inside the other. Each a different colour. Everyone has seen the pictures which form the “Homage to the Square” series. It was with these, and other works of art, that painter, colour philosopher and teacher of the Bauhaus Josef Albers wrote art history. An entire museum – the Josef Albers Museum Quadrat Bottrop – is now dedicated to Albers in the city of Bottrop, where he was born in 1888. The city’s homage to a great artist? Yes, but also the artist’s homage to the city.
