An exhibition designed by Zaha Hadid

The 12th June saw the opening of Kurt Schwitters: Merz a large retrospective exhibition at Galerie Gmurzynska in Zurich, Switzerland, that includes over 70 works by artist Kurt Schwitters.
The exhibition resumes and continues an experience that began in 2011 when, for an exhibition on Russian suprematism the Galerie Gmurzynska was transformed by an architectural design by Zaha Hadid and Russian works were shown side by side with architecture by the Zaha Hadid Architects studio.

This new design project is, in particular,an architectural tribute by Zaha Hadid to Merzbau,Kurt Schwitters’ most important work. Painting and sculptures by Schwitters combine in the exhibition space with architecture by Hadid in a presentation that creates connections, encapsulates and unites the objects on display in a single spatial whole.

This project, notes Mathias Rastorfer, CEO and co-owner of Gmurzynska Galleries, was completed despite the premature death of Zaha Hadid, thanks to the decade-long collaboration with the Zaha Hadid Architects studio, now led by architect Patrik Schumacher.
