The first biography of the enigmatic dadaist known as "the Baroness"—Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven.
Working in Germany between the two world wars, John Heartfield (born Helmut Herzfeld, 1891–1968) developed an innovative method of appropriating and reusing photographs to powerful political effect. As a pioneer of modern photomontage, he sliced up mass media photos with his iconic scissors and then reassembled the fragments into compositions that utterly transformed the meaning of the originals. In John Heartfield and the Agitated Image, Andrés Mario Zervigón explores this crucial period in the life and work of a brilliant, radical artist whose desire to disclose the truth obscured by the mainstream press and imperial propaganda made him a de facto prosecutor of Germany’s visual culture. Zervigón charts the evolution of Heartfield’s photomontage from an act of antiwar resistance into a formalized and widely disseminated political art in the Weimar Republic. Appearing on everything from campaign posters to book covers, the photomonteur’s notorious pictures challenged well-worn assumption and correspondingly walked a dangerous tightrope over the political, social, and cultural cauldron that was interwar Germany. Zervigón explains how Heartfield’s engagement with montage arose from a broadly-shared dissatisfaction with photography’s capacity to represent the modern world. The result was likely the most important combination of avant-garde art and politics in the twentieth century. A rare look at Heartfield’s early and middle years as an artist and designer, this book provides a new understanding of photography’s role at this critical juncture in history.
Tenderenda Der Phantast
Author: Hugo Ball
Publisher: Createspace Independent Publishing Platform
Bereits in den Jahren 1914 bis 1920 entstand Hugo Balls Text Tenderenda der Phantast. Eine Gattungsbezeichnung ist nicht ganz einfach zu finden, denn mit einem Roman im herk�mmlichen Sinn - Hugo Ball selbst hatte urspr�nglich "Roman" als Gattungsbezeichnung vorgeschlagen - haben die 15 Episoden des Tenderenda nur wenig gemein. Die Kapitel, denen jeweils zeitlich-r�umliche Vorbemerkungen, pointierten Regieanweisungen gleich, vorangestellt sind, tragen demnach auch so poetische und enigmatische �berschriften wie: Der Aufstieg des Sehers, Grand Hotel Metaphysik oder Bulbos Gebet und der Gebratene Dichter. Die realzeitlichen und die autobiographischen Einschreibungen verleihen dem Text jedoch eine Chronologie und damit auch eine Art Koh�renz. Der Aufstieg des Sehers spielt auf den gro�en Einfluss von Nietzsches Zarathustra auf die Literatur des Expressionismus und Dadaismus an, Das Karusselpferd Johann handelt von der Emigration einer "phantastischen Dichtergemeinde" im Jahr 1914, und Grand Hotel Metapyhysik hat nichts Geringeres als die "Geburt des Dadaismus" zum Thema.
In 1919, the same year Demian was published, seven of these stories appeared as a book entitled Märchen--literally, Fairy Tales. For this first edition in English, we have followed the arrangement Hesse made for the final collected edition of his works, where he added an eighth story, "Flute Dream." The new note so clear in Demian was first sounded, Hesse believed, in some of these tales written during the years 1913 to 1918, the period that brought him into conflict with supporters of the war, with his country and its government, with conventional intellectual life, with every form of orthodoxy both in the world and in himself. Unlike his earlier work, from Peter Camenzind through Knulp, the stories in Strange News from Another Star do not allow for an essentially realistic interpretation. They are concerned with dream worlds, the subconscious, magical thinking, and the numinous experience of the soul. Their subject is the distilling of wisdom. The eight stories are "Augustus," "The Poet," "Flute Dream," "Strange News from Another Star," "The Hard Passage," "A Dream Sequence," "Faldum," and--perhaps the masterpiece of this collection--"Iris."
Army of One
Author: Elisabeth Real
Publisher: Scheidegger Und Spiess Ag Verlag
“It’s not hard pulling a trigger, it’s not even hard picking up body parts . . . You’re just working. You gotta look at it that way, and you take that home with you.”—Jamie McFarland, New Orleans, Louisiana We all know the numbers: two million US troops were deployed to designated combat zones in Iraq. Of them, 4,500 were killed in service. By the most conservative estimates, 30,000 were wounded, but this statistic fails to take into account the most common—and often just as disabling—category of combat-related injuries: post-traumatic stress disorder and related traumatic brain injury. For Army of One, photographer Elisabeth Real looks beyond these numbers to the individual soldier. From 2006 to 2012, Real spent time with six men who served in Iraq and whose lives have been irreversibly altered by the war. Five of the men have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. Through intimate photographs and in-depth interviews, Real tells their stories. “Army of One,” the since-retired recruitment slogan, suggests that, by taking your future into your hands, you will be as powerful as an army. Yet, for many soldiers, it has come to mean exactly the opposite. A single diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder can cost up to $1.5 million over a soldier’s lifetime, and many are left to suffer this condition alone—the lone warrior fighting a war he or she may never win. Real’s photographs capture the difficulties the men have faced since returning and how, in turn, the consequences of the combat experience have carried over to affect their families and other aspects of their civilian lives.
