Notes and Editorial Reviews

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 leading protagonists of the 20th century. He was a painter, sculptor, architect, poet and playwright, as well as a utopian romantic, subverting and transforming everything he touched into art.
