Review: Sophie Taeuber-Arp: 

Sophie Taeuber-Arp was an artist at the forefront of the 20th-century avant-garde. She was also a craftswoman, a graphic designer, a poet, an interior designer and a performer. Such a variation of disciplines has made it hard to define her as an artist. But does that mean she has been overlooked? Tate Modern has put on a major retrospective of Taeuber-Arp’s vast amount of work made throughout her vibrant career. Robert Bound, Ossian Ward and Amah-Rose Abrams review it in this week’s episode, and discuss the links between Africa and the dada movement, the readdressing of the traditional art canon and the seriousness with which decorative art forms are considered.
