In 1921 Tristan Tzara and other members of Dada planned to publish an anthology about this movement. For doing it, they asked numerous artists to send them works that would be part of that anthology that they decided to call «Dadaglobe». In 2016, Kunsthaus Zürich, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Dada, brings together all those works sent by more than 40 artists from all over the world in an exhibition that reconstructs this unpublished book. The material was dispersed during the 20th century among public and private collections, especially from Berlin, Paris and New York. Kunsthaus has joined them and will show from the solicitation form letter signed by Francis Picabia, Tristan Tzara, Walter Serner and George Ribemont-Dessaignes until 200 works and contributions by Hans Arp, André Breton, Max Ernst, Hannah Höch or Sophie Taeuber-Arp among which there are manuscripts, poems, photomontages, collages, book page designs, essays or drawings.

The exhibition will be also shown in MoMA New York from June 12th to September 18th.
