Albers' Dunce

In the late 1940s Robert Rauschenberg was briefly the student of Josef Albers at Black Mountain College. “I was Albers’ dunce, the outstanding example of what he was not talking about," said Rauschenberg. “He was a beautiful teacher and an impossible person.”

Rauschenberg's work shows up all the time on this forever-rolling screen. Appearances by Albers are rare.
