    A repository of artists’ online works that draw their inspiration from Kurt Schwitters. Guided by his innovations in visual arts, spoken word, typography and poetry, the project anticipates how Schwitters’ spirit might have flourished in the online world, while highlighting the debt that new forms of digital collage owe to Schwitters’ formative example. Funded by Film and Video Umbrella, the site includes newly commissioned works by Andrea Luka Zimmerman, Nick Crowe and Ian Rawlinson, Ian Forsyth and Jane Pollard, Alec Finlay, and George Barber. Their works reflect the many different facets of Schwitters’ aesthetic while exploring today’s ever expanding outlets for combining and communicating images, texts and sounds. Whether using content-sharing platforms such as Pinterest as places to find and assemble material, or experimenting with other forms of digital dissemination such as downloads and applications, the pieces demonstrate how Schwitters’ practice continues to reverberate in the present.
