Born in Hanover in 1887, Kurt Schwitters attended the Dresden Academy of Art and at the end of the First World War made contact with Dada groups in Europe. During his lifetime, he worked across many different art disciplines, creative traditions, art forms and media, and maintained an extraordinary output of collages, paintings, poetry, performance, audio arts, theatre, photography, sculpture, installation projects. Richard Hamilton, Sir Peter Blake, Eduardo Paolozzi, Robert Rauschenberg and others acknowledge Schwitters' influence on the development of Pop Art in the early 1960s. Schwitters' influence on the development of contemporary art, sculpture and architecture continues to be widely acknowledged.
This event is in collaboration with Merz Barn.
