Defining DADA is no easy task.
It is by nature elusive and impossible to classify.
The movement arose in the wake of World War I as a reaction against the values and art of Western civilisation.
DADA officially began in February 1916 in Zurich, a refuge for exiled pacifists and political opponents.
They rebelled against conformism and championed spontaneity, irony and derision.
The DADA SPIRIT was adopted by poets, writers, painters and photographers, including Tzara, Arp, Ernst, Aragon, Breton, Picabia, Duchamp and Man Ray.
In his manifesto of 1918, Tristan Tzara, one of the founders of DADA, called for subversion:
"DADA doubts everything.
DADA is an armadillo.
Everything is DADA, too.
Beware of DADA."
Creativity and humour take centre stage. Down with boredom and long live rebellion!
