Catalog of some of Marcel Janco’s artworks. Also included are writings about Janco by artists and authors such as Jean Arp, R. Huelsenbeck, Hugo Ball, and Hans Richter. Marcel Janco (1895-1984) was a Romanian and Israeli avant-garde artist, architect, and intellectual who co-founded the movements of Dadaism and Constructivism. He was a founder of the Ein Hod utopian artist colony, and a target of anti-Semetic activity during World War II. Many of the works in this volume are reflections of his war-time experience and activism.
