After Anni Albers immigrated to America with her husband, Josef, in 1933, her writing practice quickly expanded. Through texts published in magazines or catalogues and ultimately in two books—On Designing (1959) and On Weaving (1965)—she considered terms like “medium” and “design” as they integrated and, in postwar America, increasingly eclipsed the work of “craft.” In this chapter, Albers is set into dialogue with several significant and incongruent voices on media from this moment.
