‘DADA WAS THERE BEFORE THERE WAS DADA.’
The National Museum Zurich is holding an exhibition in 2016 to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the birth of Dadaism. The exhibition not only features works of Dada art and literature but also examines the global and universal impact of the Dada movement right up to the present day. A highlight of the exhibition is the legendary ‘Fountain’ by Marcel Duchamp, the ‘Mona Lisa’ of Dadaism. And in a whirl through time and space, the Dada esprit comes alive through objects, projections and sound poems, involving all the human senses. Because: ‘DADA EST TATOU. TOUT EST DADA.’
