Library Shelf Location 04.DADA
Publication Date 2008
Description Now available in paperback, this lavishly illustrated and astonishingly comprehensive volume stands as the definitive study of the influential but deliberately elusive international Dada movement of the early twentieth century. Organized according to the city centres where this shifting, quintessentially avant garde movement emerged, "Dada: Zurich, Berlin, Cologne, Hannover, New York, Paris" features the work of 40 key artists, both infamous and lesser-known, including Louis Aragon, Hans Arp, Hugo Ball, Andre Breton, Otto Dix, Marcel Duchamp, Hannah Hoch, Man Ray, Tristan Tzara and Kurt Schwitters, to name just a few, in media spanning from painting and sculpture to photography, collage, photomontage, prints and graphic work.It contains hundreds of reproductions of often quite ephemeral works which, until the major traveling exhibition of 2005 and 2006 for which this book was originally produced, had for the most part never been seen in one place together. Documentary images, topical essays and an invaluable illustrated chronology of the movement make this volume uniquely essential, along with witty chronicles of events in each city centre; a selected bibliography; and biographies of each artist, accompanied by Dada-era photographs.
