From 1892 to 1896, he was apprenticed to the landscape photographer Alois Beer, although he learned little.[1] In 1896, he attempted suicide on his mother's grave, and his short stint in the Austrian army the following year ended with a nervous breakdown.[1] In 1898, Kubin began a period of artistic study at a private academy run by the painter Ludwig Schmitt-Reutte, before enrolling at the Munich Academy in 1899, without finishing his studies there.

“The demiurge is a hybrid”
Alfred Kubin, The Other Side

“Yaşayanların dünyasına döndüğümde tanrımın sadece yarısının hüküm sürdüğünü keşfettim. Büyük ya da küçük olsun her şeyi, yaşam isteyen bir muhalifle paylaşması gerekiyordu. İtme ve çekim kuvvetleri, dünyanın iki kutbu ve akımları, mevsimlerin değişimi, gündüz ve gece, siyah ve beyaz - bunların hepsi birer savaştır.
Gerçek cehennem, bu karşıtlığın kendi içimizde de olmasıdır. Aşk bile 'dışkı ile idrar arasına' odaklanmıştır. Yüce olan, gülünç olana alaya ve ironiye yenik düşebilir.”
