A Brief Biography of Max Bill

Max Bill was born December 22, 1908 in Winterthur, Switzerland. Among his many talents he was an architect, sculptor, painter, graphic artist and industrial designer, and importantly he was a politician and was elected to the Swiss Parliament (1967-1971). He must have been a mischevious child because his parents sent him to a reform school after he stole a penny novel from a shop. He learned to paint at that school and then went to study at the School of Arts and Crafts in Zurich (established in 1878 and today known as the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), not far from Winterthur, from 1924 to 1927. He studied at the famous Bauhaus in Germany and was an anti-fascist before Hitler came to power. He was also a writer and printmaker and produced fourteen folio-size works. He lost one eye due to a tumor in October 1977, and died of a heart attack on December 9, 1994 while waiting for his flight at Tegel airport in Berlin, Germany.
