Conversation on Kurt Schwitters: Color and Collage

The Menil Collection

German artist Kurt Schwitters remains one of the most influential figures of the international avant-garde. In the years following the First World War he coined the term “Merz,” in reference to his ambition to “make connections …between everything in the world.” Placing special emphasis on the significance of color and light in the artist’s work and delving into the relationship between collage and painting, this Menil Collection exhibition presents the first overview in the U.S. of the artist’s oeuvre since the MoMA retrospective of 1985.

Join co-curators Isabael Schulz and Josef Helfenstein in a conversation on this landmark exhibition. The talk is free and open to the public
