Kurt Schwitters was in the early 1930s considered entartet by Hitler. He lived in exile in Norway , a country he had visited as a tourist several times . He stayed until the Germans invaded Norway in 1940. He lived in Lysaker and during the summers on Hjertøya outside Molde. Here he built his Merz - huts and worked with collages and assemblages . Karin Hellandsjø has done research for many years on this unique artist's life and work in Norway . The book also presents several of Schwitters texts , some of which have never been published. The book is richly illustrated .
