Schwitters in BritainThe late work of Kurt Schwitters, a significant figure in European Dadism, comes under the spotlight in Schwitters in Britain, the first major exhibition to examine this artist who was forced to flee Germany during Nazi occupation. The Tate Britain exhibition focuses on his British period, from his arrival in Britain as a refugee in 1940 until his death in Cumbria in 1948. The works, which show traces of the impact of his exile, number over 150 collages, assemblages and sculptures, many shown in the UK for the first time in over 30 years.

 

About Tate Britain

Overlooking the River Thames, Tate Britain was originally founded through the philanthropy of the sugar magnate Sir Henry Tate. The Tate legacy now encompasses three other galleries around the UK, including Tate Modern also in London. Dedicated to showcasing Britain's artistic talent, Tate Britain is home to the greatest collection of British art from 1500 to the present day. More about Tate Britain
