SOLD OUT

A possible suite of Luna Park (a collection of avant-garde voices 1913-1974) and still edited by Marc Dachy, this is a complete cd built on the 3 axes of the european dada avant-garde : 3 major artists reading their own texts. Hans Arp (from a very rare record) Raoul Hausmann (some rare pieces from 1918 to 1957 - recorded by Henri Chopin) and the great Kurt Schwitters who read his only two recorded merzpoems Anna Blume and Ursonate (both recorded in 1932). Including photos, texts, historical introduction (translation in German, French and English). Hans Arp was close to Tristran Tzara when he created Dada in Zürich. Kurt Schwitters was one of the major figure of the German avant-garde and Raoul Hausmann one of the creator of Dada in Berlin. This is the first time that the three mighty artists appear together on one record.
