"In the war, things were in terrible turmoil. What I had learned at the academy was of no use to me and the useful new ideas were still unready.... Everything had broken down and new things had to be made out of the fragments; and this is Merz. It was like a revolution within me, not as it was, but as it should have been." (Kurt Schwitters)

"Kurt Schwitters is an artist's artist, influential and revered. A key figure of dadaism, he made some of the 20th century's most beautiful and accomplished collages, and in doing so paved the way for pop art and arte povera." (© Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.)
