The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation has an ongoing internship program. Interns work closely with the Foundation's staff and are exposed to many different areas of museum operations. Activities include assisting with the organization, storage, and documentation of the collection; preparation of exhibitions; research; and general administrative support.
The internships are intended primarily for college juniors and seniors and graduate students. A major in Art History or related field is recommended, and knowledge of German is an advantage but not a necessity. Interns have access to the Foundation's collection, library, and archive, and the unique opportunity to closely interact with visiting artists, scholars, and museum professionals.
Besides summer internships which run from June through August, applicants wishing to do part-time internships during the school year, or graduating or recently graduated students interested in longer period full-time internships (from 3 to 6 months), are also encouraged to apply. Internships are supported by modest stipends.
Please note that the Albers Foundation is closed in an effort to contain the spread of Covid-19. We are currently not accepting applications for Internship positions until further notice. Please check back to this page in the coming months.
