SCHWITTERS. Burns Gamard, Elizabeth.
Princeton Architectural Press, 2000
Book ID: 25018

A 17 year story of a combination of collage, sculpture, and architecture which eventually took Schwitters's entire living quarters, the apartment above, and part of the yard, and was left unfinished when he fled Hannover in 1937. The book  provides information supporting the belief that artist such as Josephy Beuys and Robert Rauschenberg consciously extend the project of Merz. The author focuses on the relationship between Schwritters' ideas and those of German nature mysticism and German Romanticism, thus providing an extensive genealogy of the project as well.
