Jean Schwind

°1935 – 1985, Belgium                                                                            (Jean Warie)

Schwind was a pseudonym used by an academic who turned an artist, heir to the destructive side of Dada. Warie created a mysterious persona that would go against the very notion of an artist as an individual genius who creates (and sells) unique pieces of art. He was the first and only Belgian appropriation artist. The intention behind his pastiches was not to forge his way into the art market, but to expose art as a swindle. He also often destroyed his own pastiches.
