Dada is a new tendency in art. One can tell this from the fact that until now nobody knew anything about it, and tomorrow everyone in Zurich will be talking about it. Dada comes from the dictionary.

Dada ( pron.: / ˈ d ɑː d ɑː / ) or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. It began in Zurich , Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter. [ 1 ] To quote Dona Budd's The Language of Art Knowledge , Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I . This international movement was begun by a group of artist and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition.

June 24–September 4, 2006 Dada was a provocative and irreverent art movement, founded in Switzerland in the early twentieth century, in which a seemingly chaotic, spontaneous, and pessimistic aesthetic influenced painting, sculpture, theater, literature, and film. The movement’s name is a willfully nonsensical word, intended to punctuate the meaninglessness artists saw in their contemporaneous worldview. Dada filmmakers such as Hans Richter, Man Ray, and Viking Eggeling were challenged by the developing technology of filmmaking in the 1920s. This confluence of technology and aesthetic experimentation suited the Dadaists’ passion for the machine-made object.
