Event overview

Merzschmerz shows as part Andrea Luka Zimmermann's first UK solo exhibition, Common Ground, broadly exploring the impact of globalisation, power structures and denied histories.

A number of Kurt Schwitters’ captivating children’s tales form the basis of Merzschmerz, which takes the form of a series of short videos in which children revisit what they remember of each recently-read story, and relay it in the company of an adult (family member, neighbour, guardian or friend). As the children furrow their brows in concentration, or smirk in advance at the funny things they are about to impart, their excited faces are echoed by the indulgent, quizzical smiles of the adults, creating a moment of togetherness, and adding to the pieces’ infectious charm.
