Heebee Post #1115 - Torma Cauli - Budapest - Hungary
But when you throw in this dark Dada egg that contains the names of Kurt Schwitters and Raoul Hausmann, it seems that the Torley bubbly is in celebration of these famous early Avant Garde Dadaists - another level. The large letters "MERZ", refer to a publication of Schwitters' but, more importantly, MERZ was used, contemporarily, as a term referring to and identifying things of Dada nature. Therefore, the postcard itself is "MERZ". This history of Dada is fascinating and Cauli must have a vast knowledge of it. I know he is in the Hannah Hoch Fan Club, who also hung around with the Berlin Avant Garde at the time. This card is a wonderful statement of love for bygone heroes.
