The International Dada Archive has extensive holdings of works by and about Ball. The Archive has microfilmed large portions of the Ball papers in the possession of Annemarie Schütt-Hennings at Agno, Switzerland, as well as the Hugo-Ball-Sammlung at the Stadtbücherei Pirmasens, Germany.
A selective bibliography of Hugo Ball by Rudolf E. Kuenzli and Timothy Shipe (emphasizing English-language publications) was published in the reprinted edition of Ball's Flight out of Time: A Dada Diary, edited with an introduction and notes by John Elderfield, translated by Ann Raimes (Berkeley: University of California Press, 1996), pp. 256-66.
