The theater of the Bauhaus by Oskar Schlemmer( )

40 editions published between 1960 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bauhaus movement was one of the twentieth century's most daring experiments in arts education, and its influence on architecture, design, and the visual arts is well known. Many of its most important ideas are revealed in Bauhaus writings about theatrical performance and performance spaces. The Theater of the Bauhaus, originally published in Germany in 1924, describes a theater stripped of history, moralism, scenery, even narrative itself. The Bauhaus group believed traditional theater to be little more than a vehicle for propaganda and rejected as well the theater of ridicule and satire practiced by the Dadaists and Expressionists. In place of both conventional and avant-garde drama, Oskar Schlemmer and his Bauhaus associates created an abstract theater of movement, color, light, form, and sound - language would be added later, once the stage had been purged of its "literary encumbrance." They believed that humanity's essential nature - freed from history, tradition, class and nationality - would find expression in theatrical works that incorporated pantomime, masks, dance, and acrobatics

Franz Kafka : pictures of a life by Klaus Wagenbach( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Kafka's writing, Albert Camus tells us, we travel "to the limits of human thought." And in this book, the world's leading Kafka authority conducts us to the deepest reaches of Kafka's own troubled psyche, to reveal the inner workings of the man who gave his name to a central facet of modern experience, the Kafkaesque. Klaus Wagenbach, who wrote the first major critical biography of Kafka, draws upon a wealth of new and recent information to produce a concise but finely nuanced portrait of the author, an ideal introduction to this quintessential figure of modernity." "With extensive reference to Kafka's extraordinary letters and diaries, Wagenbach shows us the author of Metamorphosis and The Trial perpetually caught between the irresistible attractions of the world and his ruthless desire for solitude and isolation. It was this tension, Wagenbach tells us, that gave Kafka's writing its uncanny quality and that haunted his intense, unresolved relationships with women. And it was in this tension that both his misery and mastery inhered, making his one of the most painfully powerful voices of the experience of the twentieth century."--Jacket
