The remarkable journey of Schwitters' Merzbarn
1965: Moving a wall from Elterwater in the Lake District to the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle
In 2008 we investigated the tales behind these two
locations and we pieced together and retraced the original route taken
by the wall all those years ago.
In 2011 we were surprised by an additional “third location” in London, which seems to complete the story in a more formal way, followed in 2013 by a artists impression covering “our” story in a remarkable graphic biography.
