DADA Surrealism and Their HeritageANTIQUE
Rubin, William Stanley
"the beginnings of Dada", one of its founding members recalled, "were not the beginnings of art, but of disgust." Appearing almost spontaneously among artists and intellectuals in such diverse centers as New York, Zurich, Berlin, and Paris it was a movement essentially of reaction -- reaction against the horrors of the First World War, against the inhumanity and meterialism of the modern world. The Dadaists aimed "to destroy the hoaxes of reason," and "to put the arts once again under the dependency of man." The New York Museum of Art, 1968-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good.
