Kurt Schwitters

The Kurt Schwitters scandal was pure DADA!  Whilst he was alive, Schwitters provoked the art world with his one-man Dada movement, Merz, which united painting, sculpture, architecture and literature in fragments.

After his death he hit the headlines again due to several sensational inheritance lawsuits involving his heirs, a mistress, the Norwegian government, and the Marlborough Gallery – which had gained notoriety during the Rothko scandal. Looking back on Schwitters’ life and work, this film unravels a bizarre story of deceit, intrigue, power and money.

Art Lives, from Arthaus, is a powerful and arresting series of documentaries on artists and art movements released for the first time on DVD in the English language.
