fondation arp's publications


Sophie Taeuber, Rythmes plastiques, réalités architecturales


Fondation Arp, Clamart, 2007,
broché, catalogue 136 pages, 60 pleines pages illustrations couleur.

Prix : 30 €


Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the fondation arp, in 2007. Texts by Jean François Chevrier and Chiara Jaeger. The last French book devoted to Sophie Taeuber dates back to 1989, when she was given a major retrospective at the Musée d'Art Moderne

in the city of Paris. After the exhibition «Dada»

of the Musée National d'art Moderne - Centre Pompidou

in 2005 which highlighted the brilliant place

of Sophie Taeuber (1889-1943) in the Dadaist avant-garde and the genesis of art concret, the book published

by the fondation arp contributes to the overall review

of the artist’s work.


Atelier Jean Arp et Sophie Taeuber


Fondation Arp et les Éditions des Cendres, 2012.
Texte : Renaud Ego,

Format : 225 x 255 mm, 288 pages, 356 illustrations, Impression
quadri sur papier 150g, reliure cartonnée.

Prix : 42 €


A place of life and creation, a space for encounters with the works of art, Clamart’s studio and the exceptional collections it contains is an essential testimony

to the perception and knowledge of the work of Jean Arp and Sophie Taeuber.


While many of the works of the two artists have today

left Clamart for museums or private collections around

the world, the studio of Jean Arp and Sophie Taeuber

is also a source of questions for those who enter

in research of their imaginary museum.
This new book is a response to this expectation. Showing the singular artistic adventure of Jean Arp

and Sophie Taeuber, this publication aims to bring out,

in a sensitive approach, the originality of both their own work and the one they built in common, without always being able to distinguish the part of one from the other.


Arp et Taeuber


Fondation Arp et les Éditions des Cendres, 2014.
Texte de Serge Fauchereau

Format : 240x170 mm, 96 pages, 97 illustrations

Impression quadri sur GardaPat 135 g

Prix : 14 €



Serge Fauchereau provides a relevant and concise

insight into the less known aspects of the work of Jean Arp and Sophie Taeuber. He also evokes their decisive role

in the International Dada and their contribution

in Concrete Art and Abstraction, in particular the role

of Sophie Taeuber in the publication of the magazine Plastic/Plastique.

Intended for a wide audience, this book, easy to handle, encourages to enter the work of the two artists. It is also an introduction to the visit of their studio in Clamart, which the fondation arp has revived since 1979, and which

has no equivalent in France or in the world.


 Jean Arp, François Weil - Entre les lignes du temps


2018, 420 pages

Prix : 50 €

En coédition avec les Éditions des Cendres, Paris


This work is the support of the exhibition held, from winter 2018 to spring 2019, at the foundation, at the same time as at the Vallon Galliera, Fondation d'Auteuil, in Meudon.

A ping-pong of images of works, thoughts, remarks

on the factory of art, on the relationship of the artist

to the world and to the life of our planet.

A dialogue three generations away, which points out

the affinities, but also sometimes the differences, between a sculptor in the midtime of his career, and his great elder of the twentieth century.

Elles font l’abstraction


Catalogue d’exposition, Centre Pompidou, 6 mai - 23 août 2021, Éditions du Centre Pompidou, Paris, 2021, 344 pages.

Prix : 49 €


Most of the exhibitions devoted to the history of abstraction have often downplayed the fundamental role played by women in the development of this trend.

By focusing on the paths of these sometimes unjustly shadowed artists, the exhibition proposes to write another history of art, extended to dance, applied arts, photography, cinema and performative arts. The exhibition thus highlights the decisive turning points that marked this artistic evolution.
