Merzbau-Garten is a collaborative project which will grow over the course of 2020 in three modules by combining the work, concepts and labor of various Berlin-based artists, writers, and designers.

Inspired in part by Kurt Schwitters’ Merzbau, the space at Kinderhook & Caracas will organically accumulate architectural interventions, art works and plant life over the course of the year, meanwhile manifesting in a parallel, non-linear publication with contributions from all of the participants. A program of encounters accompanies the physical exhibition.

The loose theme of each module is determined through a dialog established between the artists. Module I revolves around the connections between the mythology of the object, artist gardens, house museums, and contamination.
