    About The Work

    These posable figurines are based on the original 1918 Dada marionettes by Sophie Taeuber-Arp. The original marionettes (17 in all)  were created by Taeuber-Arp for a richly embellished Dada version of “King Stag”, a tragicomedy by Carlo Gozzi. Taeuber-Arp’s revered creations, long known only in artist circles, are among the most important art works of the avant-garde, merging Dada performance with Constructivist and Concrete art. Created in collaboration with the Museum fur Gestalting Zurich and hand-crafted in Germany.
