Dada: 100 Years Later
A century ago, a small group of provocateurs took the stage at Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, starting a movement called Dada—now celebrated in a series of exhibitions—that forever changed modern art.
The Wall Street Journal looks back at 100 years of Dada. This June, artist Tristan Tzara’s planned but unrealized magnum opus of Dada, Dadaglobe, will be reconstructed in an exhibition at MoMA. In 1921, Tzara invited more than 30 artists from seven countries to submit artworks. Dadaglobe Reconstructed will bring together these photographs, drawings, photomontages, and collages, along with a selection of related manuscripts, printed matter, and documentation.
