Overview

"Dada and Surrealism are widely considered to be two of the most intriguing and influential art movements of the twentieth century. The art and poetry connected with these avante-garde movements - produced by major figures such as Andre Breton, Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, John Heartfield, Joan Miro and Salvador Dali - ranges from being hauntingly irrational to anarchically humorous and provocative. Dada is seen as iconoclastic and confrontational; Surrealism as similarly anti-bourgeois in spirit but more deeply immersed in the bizarre; both are known for their focus on sexuality, identity, fetishism, and shock tactics." This entertaining and concise history of Dada and Surrealism pinpoints what is distinctive about them, and reveals the enormous influence they have had on contemporary art.
