Das Leben ist eine herrliche Erfindung

The artist collective "Strebt Vorwärts" (Strives Forwards) created a huge mural on the firewall of a detached house in 2011. The Hanoverian artist and Dadaist Kurt Schwitters should be given a monument with the theme of the design: "Leben ist eine herrliche Erfindung" (Life is a wonderful invention). This sentence by Theo van Doesburg, quoted by Kurt Schwitters, gave the Wall its central message. After the completion of a residential building attached to the firewall, the original work has not been visible since 2019.
 Instead a smaller work on the facade of the new building is reminiscent of Kurt Schwitters. Street artist Joy Lohmann also used the original theme for this artwork. 
(I photographed the old facade in August 2015)
