| First in-depth examination: the artist’s late period in exile in England
After the Nazis outlawed his work, Kurt Schwitters (1887–1948) spent the remaining years of his life in exile. First in Norway and then in England, the painter, collage artist, and author was constantly confronted with new situations and foreign worlds. This is also expressed in his assemblages, collages, figurative paintings, and drawings, which reflect various periods and living circumstances in his life, as well as in his use of a variety of media. The late compositions are open, loose, and seemingly improvised. During the forties in London, Schwitters rediscovered the colored sculpture. This publication is the first to explore his sculptures in their meaning for the diversity of his late work as well as for his entire oeuvre, documenting all of this with personal and historical accounts, archival material, and photographs. Exhibition schedule: Sprengel Museum, Hannover, June 2–August 25, 2013
