Kurt Schwitters [DVD]

Kurt Schwitters [DVD]

This informative program presents a look at the greatest works of art created by this extraordinary artist. Kurt Schwitters (1887-1948) was one of the leaders of 20th century art. He was a painter, sculptor, architect, poet and playwright, as well as a utopian romantic, subverting and transforming everything he touched into art. 

This DVD provides a detailed look at the works of the German artist, now best known for his collages and junk sculpture. Schwitters began painting as an expressionist, but in 1919 he turned to collage, incorporating into his works trash such as train tickets and newspapers, which he exploited for their color, texture, and surprise value. Includes many of Schwitters' most famous creations filmed during an exhibition of his works at the George Pompidou Museum.
