Raoul Hausmann Architecte. Ibiza 1933 – 1936

In the 1920s no one could have foreseen that Raoul Hausmann (Wien 1886 – Limoges 1971) – a founder of the Berlin Dada movement, who was known for his extremism and his photomontages – would one day become interested in the traditional habitat of the island of Ibiza, in architecture, ethnography and documentary photography. The photographs reconstruct the atmosphere of the island before it was given over to tourism and give us the opportunity to travel through time by bringing back an exceptional cultural and architectural heritage This book traces the remarkable transition of an artist who retreated from the avante-garde paths he had marked out in order to look at man and his primordial activities: song, poetry and the construction of his house. It describes the exacting research work that the Dadaist-artist pursued on the island.
