(25th Anniversary Special Edition). (Basic Art series). A precursor to Surrealism, Dada stressed the absurd and unpredictable, the illogical and chaotic, lashing out against
traditional esthetics and unpending artistic conventions. Emerging from the artistic & intellectual milieu of Zurich during WWI, Dada signalled a re-evaluation of art's cultural relevance in the armpit of industrialized warfare. Jean Arp, Tristan Tzara, Marcel Duchamp, and Max Ernst are among themost notorious practitioners of Dada. This survey offers summaries of their lives and works, plus others, including Man Ray, Francis Picabia and Hannah Hoch. Approximately 100 color illustrations with captions. 96p.
