merz_city.SKU05010405iraqieye_1
I started Merz_city in the beginning of 2004, at the time of the Seige of Falluja. It was a very dark time. In America everyone was afraid to speak out. “Shock and awe” was already a year old, with no end in sight. No one could really see what was going on there. We were blind and mute. This made me think about aphasic space. The natural recourse was to Kurt Schwitters. Merz- is a principle of endless sublation: images constantly disappear, but are secretly preserved. Merz_city, after 9/11, lives by a rule of three: 1. just shut up. 2. Shop and shut up. 3. Be a patriot, shop and shut up.
