Example text

Their relationship with each other is not the norm of daily speech, which has another purpose: to express something. 42 Here we read quite clearly how “an artwork that rests in itself” is autonomous from the world, rather than an expression of it. And it relies upon breaking a prior syntax to create fragments available for new manipulation. In the early years of Merz, therefore, nothing from the inside of the work makes any overtures to or draws any significance from anything outside of itself; the beholder approaches an image that is a closed totality.

My analysis of Schwitters’s turn to space and his work in the wake of the Merzbau looks to theories of late style and their intersection with the history of modernism. I take as my lead not only his retrospective analysis of his career from the vantage of exile but also his lifelong compulsion to invert any structure that would seem to develop linearly toward a seemingly inevitable end. 25 As I consider his career from the perspective of the end rather than its well-rehearsed origin [ 11 ] introduction myths, Schwitters’s achievement in collage and poetry and his early ties to expressionism and Dada will not emerge, as they so often have, as the focus of this narrative, though they will never entirely disappear from view.

Les autres are the laundry. Vont chanter is like the table of prices in the daily newspaper. 59 The advertisement, written at the service of the prices for the goods, masked not only the mechanics of production but also the objects themselves as material indices of specific, gendered bodies: the man’s shirt can be safely interchanged with the woman’s underwear by means of a uniform currency. By cutting away the prices, Schwitters did not shy away from the erotic, “indecent” charge of these objects, recognizing in their embodiment of difference and gendered asymmetry the “rhythm” of our lives.
