Emmy Hemmings

1885 (Flensberg, Germany) – 1948 (Sorengo, Italy)

She and Ball met in Munich in 1913 and were later married. In Zürich, she was involved in Dada activities centered on Cabaret Voltaire, run by Ball. Tzara, Arp, Huelsenbeck, Taueber-Arp and Janco were fellow-activists. Huelsenbeck and Richter both spoke of her child-like qualities. In the years after Ball’s death, their close friend and neighbour Hesse helped support her.
