Carolien Scholtes — Dear Mr. Schwitters

Multiple designed by studio PutGootink.

In the letter series Dear Mr. Schwitters Scholtes starts a relationship with the deceased DaDa artist Kurt Schwitters, by discussing his Merzbau: the fantastic abstract installation he built in his house in Hannover on which he worked from 1927 onwards. She resembles her theater work with Schwitters’ use of banal songs in Merzbau. She describes the importance of physical action in art, she discusses the gravity and tilting of images. In addition, she contemplates about the importance of the personal source, of Dada and how artists relate to a violent world.
