Flight out of time : a Dada diary by Hugo Ball( Book )

70 editions published between 1927 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 1,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hugo Ball (1886-1927) - poet, philosopher, novelist, cabaret performer, journalist, and mystic - was a man extremely sensitive to the currents of his time. In February 1916 he founded the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. The sound poems and performance art by Ball and the other artists who gathered there were the beginnings of Dada. Ball's extraordinary diaries, edited by John Elderfield, are here available in English in paperback for the first time, along with Elderfield's critical introduction and a new afterword, the original Dada manifesto, and a new selected bibliography of works by and about Hugo Ball and general works on Dada. -- from back cover

Ball and hammer : Hugo Ball's Tenderenda the fantast by Hugo Ball( Book )

56 editions published between 1967 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Tenderenda, composed between 1914 and 1920, Ball recounts a hallucinatory tale of his own Dada enchantment and disenchantment. Jeffrey T. Schnapp introduces the book, elaborating the cultural and historical context of Ball's work and situating Hammer's work in relation to Dada. In a concluding essay, Hammer probes various aspects of Ball's asceticism, spirituality, and sexuality to arrive at a revisionist interpretation of Zurich Dada and the origins of modernism as well as postmodern art-making."--Jacket
Critique of the German intelligentsia by Hugo Ball( Book )

40 editions published between 1919 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 508 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

Der Hugo Ball, der den >Dadaismus< in jenem kurzen halben Jahr 1916 im >Cabaret Voltaire< in Zürich erfand, ist weithin bekannt. Weniger bekannt ist Ball als Redakteur der wichtigsten Zeitung des deutschsprachigen Exils in der Schweiz während des Ersten Weltkrieges. Die >Freie Zeitung< in Bern, an der er von 1917 bis 1919 mitwirkte, wurde zum wichtigsten Sprachrohr deutscher Exilanten, in dem die Kriegspolitik Hindenburgs und Ludendorffs auf Schärfste angegriffen wurde. Ball faßte 1919 seine Überlegungen in dem großen Essay >Zur Kritik der deutschen Intelligenz< zusammen, der im Verlag der >Freien Zeitung< erschien: eine Art Abrechnung mit der deutschen Ideologie von Luther bis Bismarck, von Hegel bis Marx. An die Stelle der offiziellen Heroen deutscher Geschichte setzt Ball als Alternative eine Ahnenreihe von großen Religiösen und Moralisten. Auch seine jahrelange Beschäftigung mit dem russischen Anarchisten Bakunin findet hier ihren Niederschlag. Im Rahmen der Hugo-Ball-Ausgabe wird nicht nur erstmals wieder der ungekürzte Text der Erstausgabe von 1919 vorgelegt, der Band enthält auch die unter dem Titel >Die Folgen der Reformation< erschienene revidierte Neufassung von 1924. >>Zur Kritik der deutschen Intelligenz< ... stellt meines Erachtens den großartigsten, ehrlichsten und tiefsten Versuch Deutschlands dar, sich der verhängnisvollen Mächte im eigenen Gewissen bewusst zu werden, die zur geistigen und sittlichen Entartung des neueren Deutschland und zu seiner inneren Mitschuld am Weltelend und am Weltkrieg führten.< (Hermann Hesse, 1919)

Zinnoberzack, Zeter und Mordio alle DADA-Texte by Hugo Ball( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1916 drangen aus dem Cabaret Voltaire in Zürich die ersten schrillen Laute des DADA: Künstler wie Hans Arp, Tristan Tzara, Marcel Janco und Richard Huelsenbeck experimentierten auf der Kleinkunstbühne, doch im Zentrum stand der Vater und Initiator dieses anarchischen Anti-Kunstbetriebs Hugo Ball: Er schrieb die ersten richtungweisenden Manifeste, er erfand die berühmten Lautgedichte, die bis auf den heutigen Tag als Inbegriff des Dadaismus gelten. Schon nach wenigen aufreibenden Monaten des Cabaretbetriebs zog sich Ball ins Tessin zurück. Mit der Galerie Dada kehrte er dann noch einmal für kurze Zeit nach Zürich und zum Dadaismus zurück. Während Balls Weggefährten DADA zu einem Credo erhoben, von dem sie ihr Künstlerleben lang zehrten, blieb es für Ball nur Episode - doch seine Kreativität in diesen acht, neun Monaten war enorm, ein kurzer heftiger Rausch, aus dem ein vielfältiges dadaistisches Oeuvre entstand: neben Manifesten und Lautgedichten gehören dazu ein bruitistisches Krippenspiel, der DADA-Roman "Tenderenda der Phantast"--Beide erst nach Balls Tod aus dem Nachlass veröffentlicht - sowie Zürcher Notate aus seinem Tagebuch "Die Flucht aus der Zeit". Sämtliche DADA-Texte Hugo Balls, die bisher nur verstreut publiziert sind, erscheinen hier erstmals gesammelt in einem Band. Hugo Ball, geb. 1886 in Pirmasens, war während des Ersten Weltkrieges Mitbegründer der Dada-Bewegung in Zürich, überzeugter Pazifist und scharfer Zeitkritiker. Der enge Freund Hermann Hesses war dessen erster Biograph. Hugo Ball starb 1927 in Montagnola/Schweiz
