Sophie Taeuber-Arp meets Mina Loy

What is a vision? A fire? A sparkle? A philosophy? A pioneer?

Or nothing at all?

And what does it mean to be a woman and have a vision?

Sophie Taeuber-Arp is a Swiss painter, sculptor, dancer, architect, designer, pedagogue, pioneer of concrete art, Dadaist

and with her husband Hans Arp co-signatory of the Dadaist Manifesto 1916 in Zurich. Sophie is depicted on the current fifty-franc note

- as the only woman among seven men.

Mina Loy, born in England, is a poet, painter, designer, feminist, futurist, mother, author of a feminist manifesto and Dadaist. She has lived in Paris, New York, Mexico and Florence. After a first unsuccessful marriage, she met and married the Dadaist Arthur Cravan in 1916. Three years later Arthur is declared "lost in the ocean" and leaves Mina pregnant.
