Kurt Schwitters: the Schwitters scandal

Chu, Simon

The Schwitters scandal was pure DADA! While 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 due to several sensational inheritance lawsuits involving his heirs, a mistress, the Norwegian government and the Marlborough Gallery - which had gained notoriety in the Rothko scandal. Looking back on Schwitters' life and work, this film unravels a bizarre story of deceit, intrigue, power and money
