    Untitled (2022) MERZ film in Festivals

    In December the MERZ animation Untitled (2022) was one of fifty films screened at the European Short Film Festival in Berlin. On 25th February Untitled (2022) will be one of ten films screened at the Osprey Short Film Awards in Keswick. The animation, with puppets and shadow figures imagines Kurt Schwitters‘ memories during his final few months living in Ambleside in Cumbria. It was here that Schwitters began his final Merzbarn in a small stone building lent by market gardener Harry Pierce. The wall on which Schwitters worked was removed in the 1960s and installed in the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle where it can still be seen.
