MoUvEmEnT DADA, Paris: Au Sans Pareil, n.d.
05 February, 2016 - 01 May, 2016
Curated: Cathérine Hug, Adrian Sudhalter
In 1921 Tristan Tzara and other members of Dada planned to publish an anthology about the movement. To do so, they asked numerous artists to send works to be included in the anthology, which they decided to call Dadaglobe. However, due to economic reasons, it was never published. In 2016, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of Dada, Kunsthaus Zürich decided to bring together all the works sent by over 40 artists from all over the world in an exhibition that reconstructs, for the first time ever, the unpublished book. The material was dispersed during the twentieth century among public and private collections, particularly in Berlin, Paris and New York, and the exhibition includes the participation letter request signed by Francis Picabia, Tristan Tzara, Walter Serner and Georges Ribemont-Dessaignes and 200 works and contributions by Hans Arp, André Breton, Max Ernst, Hannah Höch and Sophie Taeuber-Arp, among which there are manuscripts, poems, photomontages, collages, essays and drawings.
