Alsatian sculptor, graphic artist, painter and writer. He exhibited with Der *Blaue Reiter artists and contributed to Der Sturm, and his
interest in poetry inspired a great deal of his graphic work. In 1915 he
moved to Zurich and, together with his wife, Sophie Taeuber, started to
make collages according to the 'law of chance'. In 1916/17 he made his
1st abstract sculptures; he participated in the Dada movement and the 1st
Surrealist exhibition in 1925. In addition to sculptures, reliefs (one at
the Unesco building in Paris), collages and drawings, A. also designed
tapestries and wrote much, both poetry and prose in French and German. His
works are usually or near abstract but nevertheless identify themselves
quite clearly with natural forms.
