Dada, the international revolutionary artistic and political movement, emerged amid the unprecedented carnage of the First World War. Although short-lived, the movement -a heady mix of anarchy, nihilism and a lethal dash of humour- produced a vast amount of polemical and creative work in both art and literature. Rejecting all social and artistic convention, the Dada artists travelled to the extremes of provocative behaviour, creating "anti-art" pieces that ridiculed and questioned the very nature of creative endeavour.
to get to the heart of Dada it is essential to encounter the artists' writings and manifestoes at first hand. To do so, one needs to read the famous -often infamous- Dada periodicals that were published between 1916 and c. 1924, from Hugo Ball's "Cabaret Voltaire" and Francis Picabia's "391" to Marcel Duchamp's "The blind man" and Kurt Scwitters's "Merz". These reviews constitutted the lifeblood of the movement, circulating between Dada groups in European cities and in New York, and communicating the diverse ideas and aspirations of the participating artists and writers. "The Dada reader" provides the first representative selection from these key Dada texts, many of which have never previously been avalaible in English. This is an essential purchase for anyone with an interest in one of the most dynamic and influetial movements of the twentieth century.
