Dada Universal Exhibit (Zürich)

Feb 5, 2016 - Mar 28, 2016

CHF10

“DADA WAS THERE BEFORE THERE WAS DADA.”

The radical artistic and literary movement “Dada” was founded in Zürich exactly 100 years ago. Dada gained instant fame around the world, but what exactly does the word “Dada” imply?

Is it nonsense and absurdity? Not exactly, because Dada was a response to the madness of World War I. The Swiss National Museum in Zürich is now holding an exhibit to commemorate this important anniversary: 100 years since the birth of Dadaism.

The exhibition not only features works of Dada art and literature, but also examines the global and universal impact of the Dada movement right up to the present day. Look out for the legendary “Fountain” by Marcel Duchamp, which is essentially the “Mona Lisa” of Dadaism. And in a whirl through time and space, the Dada esprit comes alive through objects, projections and poems, involving all the human senses.

Because: “DADA EST TATOU. TOUT EST DADA.”
