Publisher Description:
Fiction. Art. Translated from the German by David Vichnar and Tim König. Proclaimed as the first Dada novel & the literary equivalent of Cézanne, Melchior Vischer's SECOND THROUGH BRAIN (Sekunde durch Hirn, 1920) is composed as a series of disconnected vignettes that flash through the mind of one Jörg Schuh as he falls from the scaffolding of a 40-storey construction site. With its boldly idiosyncratic technique, Vischer's novel is a major document of the Zürich-Prague-Berlin Dada axis. Largely forgotten after World War II, Sekunde durch Hirn is an important rediscovered landmark of the inter-war European avant-garde, here translated into English for the first time.
