Critique of the German intelligentsia by Hugo Ball ( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This sweeping polemic by a leader of the early modern German avant garde is a highly critical tour through German political intellectual, and religious history since the Reformation. Hugo Ball places blame for the disaster of World War I on Germany's intellectual heritage and attacks figures such as Luther, Kant, Hegel, Marx, and Nietzsche for their contributions to a morally bankrupt modern ideology. First published in 1919, Critique of the German Intelligentsia is the consummate performance of an extraordinary career that took Ball from the Munich avant garde to the founding of Dada in Zurich, to theological anarchism and antiwar politics in Bern, and finally to spiritual refuge in Catholicism. Ball focuses on the corrupting influence of Germany's intellectual isolation from Western Europe and America and its lack of a democratic ethos to argue that German religion and philosophy conspired with dynastic absolutism and militarism to create the betrayal of 1914. Deeply infused with his theological politics, the book captures the cultural-political climate of an important historical juncture and culminates with an apocalyptic vision in which "Bakuninist anarchism, French romantic poetry, and chiliastic revolt all combine to restore the originary ideal of Christian justice sacrificed to throne and altar." This first English-language translation shows that Ball's thinking was marred by a hitherto unacknowledged anti-Semitism. This edition, in restoring passages excised from the original edition, reveals that the anti-Semitism of that text was not merely an embarrassment but an integral part of Ball's rejection of the war, the German Revolution, and the nationalist elite of the late Wilhelminian era
Ball and hammer : Hugo Ball's Tenderenda the fantast by Hugo Ball ( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this book, Jonathan Hammer offers a new translation of Hugo Ball's visionary novella, Tenderenda the Fantast, along with his own unique Tenderenda-inspired images. The resulting "dialogue" between Ball, the founder of Zurich Dada, and Hammer, a contemporary artist, casts new light on Dadaism and its postmodern legacies."
