Hans Bellmer

I think that different modes of expression are all born of the same law.

Hans Bellmer was born in 1902 in Katowice, Poland. At a very young age he works first as a steelworker, then in the coat mines; encouraging his friends in the revolution, he narrowly escapes from prison. In 1923, he attends classes at the Technical School in Berlin and meets the innovators of Dadaisme. George Grosz pushes him to paint and encourages him to take a critical look at society. Hans . . .
