Max Ernst’s Collaged Memories

Magda Michalska 21 July 2022 min Read

In 1919, Max Ernst worked together with Jean Arp in Cologne where they founded a branch of the Dadaist Movement: Surrealism. It became a new niche for artists who wanted to push the limits of poetry, design, performance, and painting. Ernst wanted to step “beyond painting” (au-delá de la peinture) in his artistic projects. Thus he focused on the new, radical technique of collage.
