Summary: Mies van der Rohe created - Influenced by Dada, Constructivism, and De Stijl - numerous montages and collages between 1910 and 1965 that are fascinating illustrations of the design principles of his architecture. These works, most of them large-format, are far more than merely sketches that accompanied his creative process as an architect. They are works of art in their own right that show Mies van der Rohe?s structural vision in its purest form. Abrupt changes of viewpoint, freedom from perspective, place and time, montage of found elements and an aesthetic focus on mixed media places him in the same historical context as artists and experimental filmmakers like i.e. Kurt Schwitters, Theo van Doesburg, Hans Richter, and Laszlo Moholy-Nagy.
