Merzbarn

attachment Cylinders Estate is home to Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbarn. Located in a remote woodland in the heart of the Langdale valley in Cumbria, NW England it serves as a symbolic connection and poignant memorial to the spirit and tenacity of the artist who worked there. The site is run by LITTORAL, an arts research and development Trust which promotes new creative strategies, artistic interventions and cultural partnerships in response to issues about social, cultural and environmental change.Merz Barn
