Title: Memoirs of a Dada Drummer. Edited by Hans J....
Publisher: Viking Press, New York
Publication Date: 1969
Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.
A Near Fine copy in a Very Good price clipped dust jacket with sunning to the spine. Richard Huelsenbeck - a seminal member of the original Dada group formed at Zurich's Cabaret Voltaire - looks back upon his role in Dada and Art (or rather"Anti-Art"), and tries to make some sense of it all. Though highly opinionated (especially in regards to the role of Tristan Tzara), he manages to objectively de-mystify much of the Dada legend and examine some of the human interactions and political and social motivations which sparked the birth of Dada. Low points include the incessant ¡°plugging¡± of his own work and his role in the birth of Dada, but this by no means overshadows his comments and observations about other Dadaists or the importance of the movement as a whole.

Synopsis: Huelsenbeck?s memoirs bring to life the concerns—intellectual, artistic, and political—of the individuals involved in the Dada movement and document the controversies within the movement and in response to it.
