K Ungeheuer

K. Ungeheuer was born 1908 in Berlin. Educated early in life by the roaring 20's Berlin art scene, Ungeheuer was influenced heavily by the Berlin Dada movement. Experimenting with extremely short prose, Ungeheuer published his first work in Kurt Schwitter's famous journal "Merz" in 1926. He and his wife emigrated to Portugal shortly before World War II and eventually settled in New York City. A professor of mathematics, he developed his Numerolingual theory, exploring the relationship between math and language and published two books of his short, experimental fiction before dying in an accident in 1988.

Unfortunately not many know of this man's work. This website hopes to remedy that.
