The LITTORAL Trust is also working with a team of leading architectural conservation and art restoration experts to restore the Merz Barn at Cylinder estate to near its original state (when Schwitters left it in 1947).
Decaying lintel and collapsing barn end wall.
The Trust is in discussion with the Hatton Gallery and Tyne and Wear Museums, about the restoration of the surviving Merz Barn art work in the Hatton Gallery. Once this work has been completed it is proposed to make a high resolution 1:1 replica of the wall and to place this back inside the Merz Barn, in the place of the missing work.
