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.

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.
