This study explores Karl Kraus’ case against ministerial incentives for tourism enhancement. Kraus covers the overlapping between tourism and war propaganda, as he handles an apparently negligible cultural phenomenon as a symptom for collective spiritual decay. To Kraus, the governmental push to cultivate tourism serves as a diversion for Austrians after the economic uncertainty brought on by the Great War. A case study is made of all the occurrences of the theme in the Buchausgabe (1926) of the drama Die Letzten Tage der Menschheit, together with a selection of articles and glosses from Die Fackel (1899-1936).

Abstract

This study explores Karl Kraus’ case against ministerial incentives for tourism enhancement. Kraus covers the overlapping between tourism and war propaganda, as he handles an apparently negligible cultural phenomenon as a symptom for collective spiritual decay. To Kraus, the governmental push to cultivate tourism serves as a diversion for Austrians after the economic uncertainty brought on by the Great War. A case study is made of all the occurrences of the theme in the Buchausgabe (1926) of the drama Die Letzten Tage der Menschheit, together with a selection of articles and glosses from Die Fackel (1899-1936).
