Gro artig Wahrlich schnelldrehend, komplett bescheuert und am Schlu doch einen Sinn enth llend, und dabei ein Hochvergn gen im konsequent respektlos kreativen Umgang mit der Deutschen Sprache D Second through Brain is both an interesting story and a dada manifesto programme, as well as a linguistic experiment, an attempt at making language, together with the narrative, to torque freakily high It is a text that forges its own peculiar idiom, lexically and morphologically, as well as grammatically and syntactically The text reminds us that only such aesthetic programme is revolutionary that seeks to paraphrase Marx not only to describe its own present condition and medium, but to change them That mere parody and caricature with economic gains in mind over can never bring about a change in and of themselves That fiction, if it is to keep pace with the general acceleration of civilisation, has a lot of catching up to do That fiction immersed in opportunism and commercialism need not be opportunist and commercial itself The author reminds us that radical artistic tendencies do not easily translate into radical socio political positions that they can actually flip into their opposite when geared up to organised political praxis that molluscan times breed molluscan characters This translation comes at the opportune moment of the 100th anniversary of the founding of dadaism in Zurich, reminding us of the strong cultural axis, in the 2os3os, between Prague and the epicentres of Western European avant garde The second it portrays speaks not only of its own time, but also anticipates much of the following century and our own time, and the brain it passes through even a hundred years after it spritzed on the asphalt, broke forth into yolk, mixed in slimily with the muck expired 98 is still well worth an attempt at resuscitating.
