DADA

BY MIGUEL PEREZ-LA PLANTE
@ VOL 137 ON JUN 29, 2016

"The story [we're] telling you tonight is about the first global art movement which started right here, 100 years ago, in the old town of Zurich, in a place called 'The Cabaret Voltaire.'"

Just over 100 years ago, the Dadaists used poetry, prose, parody, and provocation to confront and question the WWI society that brought so much destruction. This "nonsensical" art movement was perhaps the most decisive single influence on the development of twentieth-century art, and its innovations are a continuing source of inspiration to artists today -- Hear from Swiss Embassy Public Affairs head Miguel Perez-LaPlante and curator Yukiko Shikata speak on this radical movement in DADA from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol 137.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday July 13th, 2016.
