              Kurt Schwitters was a major protagonist in the histories of modern art and literature, whose response to the contradictions of modern life rivals that of Marcel Duchamp in its importance for artists working today. His celebrated Merz pictures--collaged and assembled from the scra...p materials of popular culture and the debris of the studio, such as newspaper clippings, wood, cardboard, fabric, and paint--reflect a lifelong interest in collection, fragmentation, and abstraction, techniques he also applied to language and graphic design. As the first anthology in English of the critical and theoretical writings of this influential artist, Myself and My Aims makes the case for Schwitters as one of the most creative thinkers of his generation. Including material that has never before been published, this volume presents the full range of his prolific writing on the art and attitudes of his time, joining existing translations of his children's stories, poetry, and fiction to give new readers unprecedented access to his literary imagination. With an accessible introduction by Megan R. Luke and elegant English translations by Timothy Grundy, this book will prove an exceptional resource for artists, scholars, and enthusiasts of his art.

              Kurt Schwitters revolutionized the art world in the 1920s with his Dadaist Merz collages, theater performances, and poetry. But at the same time he was also writing extraordinary fairy tales that were turning the genre upside down and inside out. This book gathers thirty-two stor...ies written between 1925 and Schwitters' death in 1948.

              Band 4 der Gesamtausgabe Kurt Schwitters. Alle Texte bietet erstmals eine vollst ndige Edition der von Kurt Schwitters herausgegebenen, multimedialen K nstlerzeitschrift Merz. Sie erm glicht durch eine umfassende editorische Aufbereitung und eine vielschichtige Kommentierung mit ...komplexer Verweisstruktur einen neuen Zugang zu der kunstformen bergreifenden Reihe Merz. Daf r wurden die Inhalte sowie strukturelle und gestalterische Besonderheiten der Reihe interdisziplin r erforscht. Eine genaue wissenschaftliche Analyse der einzelnen Hefte, die relevante, bisher noch unerforschte Materialien einbezieht, liefert Erkenntnisse zur Entwicklung und zu k nstlerischen Strategien des Gesamtwerks von Schwitters sowie zur Verortung von Merz in der internationalen Avantgarde der 1920er bis 1930er Jahre. Die kritische Transkription erm glicht insbesondere im Falle der als Text-Bild-Collagen komponierten Seiten eine erh hte Lesbarkeit. Die Materialit t der Reihe Merz kann und will das Buch nicht dokumentarisch abbilden. Die Leserinnen und Lesern sollen vielmehr in die Lage versetzt werden, durch die editorische Aufbereitung des Materials dessen Spezifik zu erfassen. Aus diesem Grund wendet sich die Edition an Experten und Interessierte gleicherma en, bietet sie doch sowohl Spezial- als auch berblickswissen.
