Flight Out of Time: A Dada Diary

by

Flight Out of Time: A Dada Diary Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hugo Ball—poet, philosopher, novelist, cabaret performer, journalist, mystic—was a man extremely sensitive to the currents of his time and carried in their wake. 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, one of the most significant products of the Dada movement, are here available in English in paperback for the first time, along with the original Dada manifesto and John Elderfield's critical introduction, revised and updated for the paperback edition, and a supplementary bibliography of Dada texts that have appeared since the 1974 hardcover edition of this book.

Synopsis:

"A key document. . . . Indispensable for an understanding of the beginnings of the Dada movement and Dada in Zurich."—Rudolf Kuenzli, Director, International Dada Archive

"In Flight Out of Time one can follow Dada's unfolding and expansion almost day-by-day."—Charles Haxthausen, coeditor, Berlin: Culture and Metropolis

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 256-266) and index.
