K Ungeheuer

K. Ungeheuer was born 1908 in Berlin. Educated early in life by the Golden Twenties Berlin art scene, Ungeheuer was heavily influenced 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 Ungeheuer's name is practically unknown today. The two books he published are now out of print and magazines with his stories are rare at best. This site hopes to remedy that. Here you'll find the richest source of Ungeheuer information to be found anywhere.
