Kurt Schwitters

German, 1887-1948. Best known for his works Merz and Merzbau, Schwitters navigated the techniques of both Dadaism and Constructivism. His prowess in using mixed-media and a masterly sense of composition can be attributed to his education at the Dresden Academy, and his association to prominent Dadaists. Despite suffering from epilepsy, he served in World War I as a draftsman in a machine factory; an experience which sparked the thought in him that inanimate objects embody the characteristics of the human soul. His assemblages were usually made from discarded materials found on the streets, and dynamic and layered representation of content from print media.
