Kurt Schwitters — Kurt Schwitters is considered 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. This DVD provides a complete 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 trash such as train tickets and newspapers into his works, which he exploited for their color, texture, and surprise value. The DVD includes many of Schwitters’ most famous creations, filmed during an exhibition of his works at the George Pompidou Museum. DVD. 47 minutes.
