Stoichita's compelling account untangles the background of 1 of the main enduring demanding situations to beset Western paintings - the depiction and meanings of shadows.

Das menschliche Gehirn kennt viele Wege sich einzurichten, im Alltag und im Fernsehsessel. Wie kein anderes ist es dazu fähig, aus neuen Erfahrungen Erinnerungen zu machen und Können zu erwerben. Dafür zahlen wir jedoch den Preis, dass uns vieles zur Wiederholung wird. Kulturelle Ereignisse können so Neuheitswert haben, aber auch als Alltagsgedudel durch die Finger des Gedächtnisses rinnen, und es gibt kein Argument dafür, dass das eine oder das andere "gehirngerechter" ist.

Once we recognize the analogy—even equivalence—between edge and frame, we ask ourselves: Could these internal harmonious relationships be otherwise conﬁgured?

For Merz to exist at all, this total synthesis of art and world must be inﬁnitely deferred. At the very moment when Schwitters argued for a total fusion of the individual arts (“There are no individual arts; they are artiﬁcially separated from each other.
32 Historians have devised tenacious stylistic categories to organize his incorrigibly diverse work, dividing Merz into “Dada” and “Constructivist” periods that coincide roughly with his use of found objects and his experimentation with geometric abstraction, respectively. This binary leaves no place for his work after 1930, however, and there is scant room for a trenchant investigation of sculpture within an interpretive schema that consistently favors his pictorial compositions in collage and assemblage.
